If you're not allowed your own pet fish, here's a way you can have all the sea creatures you want without having to feed anyone or clean any tanks. Grab two paper plates and you can make a great little aquarium.
Time: 20 minutes
Age: 5-10s, Over 10s
2 Paper Plates
1 Plastic Sleeve
Coloured Paper or Cards
PVA Glue or a Glue Gun
Start by cutting a circular hole in the middle of one of your paper plates.
Cut a square out the plastic sleeve, and stick it inside the paper plate (on the side you'd usually eat off).
Cut out blue paper, and stick it on the other plate (on the side you'd eat off).
Draw a couple of pieces of coral, cut them out and stick them onto the blue paper.
Draw and cut out a few other sea creatures. We used fish, a starfish, and a jellyfish. But you can use any creatures you like as long as you can draw them.
Cut several strips of card, and make accordion folds. Stick one side to each of your sea creatures using tape.
Put a bit of sticky tape to the other side, and attach the sea creatures to your background. The accordion folds will make them stick out. and give your aquarium more of a 3D effect.
Finally use some glue (we used a glue gun, but you can use PVA glue) and stick the two sides of your 'aquarium' together.
