Pop-Up Fish Prints

Pop-Up Fish Prints craft

Oceans, lakes, and rivers are all filled with an amazing variety of fish. Create a whole school of creatures with coffee filters and watercolors.

  • 1.

    Read a book such as One Small Fish or Swimmy and let your imagination soar. Create an underwater scene with fish or other creatures with coffee filter stamps. Here’s how.

  • 2.

    Use a Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencil to outline at least one fish on a coffee filter. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors.

  • 3.

    Cover your craft area with newspaper. Using a Crayola Watercolor Brush, place a few drops of water into each Crayola Washable Watercolor Paint pot. Dip the brush into the colors and apply them to the fish. Press the fish firmly onto construction paper. Repeat until your paper is covered with fish. Air-dry the paper and the fish stamp.

  • 4.

    Fold a small strip of paper back and forth like an accordion. With a Crayola Glue Stick, attach one end to the stamped paper and one end to the fish. You’ve got a pop-up fish!
