Fish Notice Board

Updated on February 6, 2015

Ocean Craft for Kids

Making your own notice board is not too difficult. We chose to make a fish notice board to go with our overall ocean theme, but you can adapt the procedure and make anything you wish. Only the sky is the limit!

Materials for Fish Craft

It is really easy to make a fish notice board. In fact, we made three fishes in the same day! One big for the notice board, and two smaller for decoration. All for our ocean themed room. You need:

- Piece of Cardboard

- Acrylic Paints

- Glitter Glue

- Scissors

- Colored Pens

- String for hanging it

Step 1- Draw a fish on a piece of cardboard

Color Pens - 36 colors

We used pens like this for making the lines on the fish, and afterwards, to mark out the details. For smaller details, you can also use them for coloring.

Step 2- Cut out the fish

Scissors for Children

If you want your kids to use scissors, these are a great choice.

Step 3- Paint the fish, use your fantasy

Acrylic Paint - 12 colors

This is a nice investment to make if you have kids. In the long run it is cheaper to buy in bulk like this. If you close the paints well and make sure they do not get dirty, they will last long. (Or not so long if you are really into crafting!)

Big Size Crayons - Easy for little hands to hold

After having painted the fish with acrylic paints, we made shades with crayons. It changes the whole look of the fish. We like these crayons, because they are easy to hold even for small children. In this way, everybody can participate.

Step 4- Put up your notice board - We use Post-it for the notes

You need glitter glue - A lot of it

This is for making the fish really special. After having filled in all the lines and borders with pen, we passed over it again with glitter glue.

What about you?

The laughter of children is an international language.
