Step 1: Draw your fish and cut some gills!

Draw an outline of a fish. then cut it out. Using a ruler, fold it in half vertically. Use a scissors and cut slits close together not going too close to the bottom and mouth. This will allow you to weave paper strips in the next step.

Step 2: Cut paper strips for fins!

Then cut 6 x 1cm strips of different coloured paper (using the long side). These will make your colourful fins in the next step!

Step 3: Get weaving!

Weave the coloured pieces of paper between the cuts you made on the fish. Once they are all weaved into the fish body, glue the ends onto the edge of the fish to hold them in place. Trim the strips so they go from smallest to largest and look like fish fins.

Step 4: Give your fish a face!

Use offcuts to cut and glue on some eyes, don’t forget to cut a mouth. Lastly, use the other coloured pages to cut and create detail like seaweed or coral!
