I thought I would share our Paper plate fish tank we made today.
You will need the following items.
  • Paper plates
  • blue pens/ crayons or paint
  • green pipe cleaners
  • fish stickers
  • cling film
  • scissors
  • PVA glue
  • Orange card or foam sheet
First colour in one paper plate. This will be the background for your tank.

Then glue or tape the pipe cleaners on to make seaweed.

Cut out a sand base from the orange foam sheet and glue it on over the bottom of the pipe cleaners.

Add stickers to make your underwater scene.

Cut the middle out of the second plate and attach some cling film to the inside. Tape works better with this.
Place this plate on top of the other to make the front of the tank and glue or tape the 2 together.

Enjoy looking at your very own “Ocean” fish tank!
