What you'll need

  • 1 sheet of blue construction paper
  • Patterned paper (stripes, polka dots, etc)
  • Scraps of yellow and green construction paper
  • Toothpick
  • 3" string
  • 2 medium wiggle eyes
  • Scrap of tan felt or paper
  • Scrap of white paper
  • Hole punch
  • Pen or pencil
  • Scissors
  • Glue stick
  • White craft glue
  • Pattern

Helpful Tip:

While patterned paper is cute, you can also have children make their own by coloring white paper with markers or crayons and cutting out your D's. Use card stock instead of construction paper for a sturdier card. Don't throw away any scraps, cut or tear them into small squares and keep in a zipper gallon bag for future projects. Great for mosaics!

How to make it

step 1

1. Fold the blue construction paper in half like a greeting card, set aside. (See photo.)

2. Print the pattern and cut the letter "D" out. Trace the "D" onto the paper and cut out the letter. Repeat for the other piece of patterned paper.

step 3

3. Cut out one of each triangle shape from the pattern from the yellow construction paper. Repeat with the green construction paper. Use a glue stick to attach the tail and fins to the fish by gluing to the back of the D shaped patterned paper. (See photo.)

step 4

4. Cut the pointed ends off of the toothpick. Tie the string to one end of the toothpick and trim one end. This is your fishing pole letter "A". (See photo.)

step 5

5. First place your fish and your fishing pole (D A D) onto the front of the card. Once you have them where you want them, use the glue stick to attach the "D's" and the white craft glue to attach the "A". (See photo.)

6. Glue on wiggle eyes and use a sharp pencil to draw a hook at the end of the fishing line. Let dry completely.
