At 3 months shy of 3 years old, Brielle is old enough to tell me her likes and wishes. Often she tells me she wants to paint or do crafts (wonder where she gets that from) I try to oblige. Since I wasn’t in the mood for a messy paint craft this week, we tried out another tissue paper craft and made some fish!

- Paper plate
- Glue stick
- Tissue paper squares
- Stapler or tape
- Googly eyes
Cut a triangle pie wedge out of the paper plate and use a stapler or tape to attach it to the back to create the fish shape.
Apply the glue onto the plate. This was her favorite part. We have these jumbo gluesticks that are purple when wet and dry clear so she can clearly see where she applied glue and where she didn’t. The perfectionist in her wanted to get it all!
Then it was time to stick tissue paper scraps on top! She went back and forth whether she wanted to keep them flat or crumble them up so there’s a mix of them on there which is completely ok! It’s HER craft and HER experience and I love the mix she made.
The last step was to apply a googly eye on top then allow to dry.
She was very proud of her paper plate fish.
So we had to make more. Aren’t they cute?
