How to make your Fish Tank!
Next glue or tape the pipe cleaners on to make seaweed. You could also use bits of tissue paper or other scraps that you think would work well.
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 Paper plate fish tank!
