Paper plate fish craft ideas
Here is another creative lesson how to learn drawing and painting for children from 4 to 7 years and some paper plate fish craft ideas.
My story: I wanted to make a fabulous aquarium. I was going to draw fish but could not find the paper. I found just paper plates and cuttings. You could draw on them, but then you will get the fish on the plate, like a fried one. This is not the case. Offer children to turn a bowl into a fish. First, you need to find out what kinds of fish exist. Find pictures with fish: what tails and fins they have, what colors? How are they decorated with points and lines, etc.
So, how to learn to draw a miracle fish with paints:
You will need:
Brush, cotton swabs,
a jar of water, a palette, a glass of water,
glue, glue brush, bowl for glue,
cloth to wipe your hands and the table
pictures of tropical fish
oilcloth for the table,
Come up with our fish – choose a tail and fins. To make a fish’s mouth open, cut out the sector of the plate.
Choose colors to paint the fish, but no more than three, they can be combined or mixed.
Draw eyes with a large brush.
Draw scales and pupil of the eye with a cotton swab. Color and decorate parts of the tail and fins. Leave to dry.
Turn over the plate. Glue places for fins and the tail. In our case, the the glue is tinted with gouache.
Attach the fins and tail.
