Most of the materials needed for making a nice CD-fish can be found in the home. An old CD, some paper and glue. Let your fantasy loose and create a tropical, colorful fish. The ocean theme is popular with both young and old, and making different crafts with fish and other sea creatures can be great fun. Have a look!

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

Chinese Proverb

We decided to spend our winter holiday doing Ocean Craft. In this way, we felt, the summer with trips to the beach and collecting shells, burying ourselves in the sand- all of this would come faster. The result can be seen on different pages, shown in the sidebar to the right. Here, we'll show you how to make a CD-Fish.

CD Fish-Step 1 - Draw The Fish

The first thing to do is to put a CD on a piece of stiff paper and draw around it , but don't glue it. It will end up at having a circle.Then you have to draw his tail and his fins, it will end up just like ours.Now the first part of your CD fish is finished.

CD Fish-Step 2 - Color The Fish

Use your imagination on coloring your CD fish. You can use yellow, brown,grey and orange for the tail or blue and red for the fins. The part on top, rainbow colors- any colors you want!!.

CD Fish-Step 4

After coloring you have to cut a circle in the middle.

CD Fish-Step 5 - The Finished CD Fish

Now your CD fish is almost ready! The last thing you have to do is glue the CD on the piece of paper and draw his eye on the CD. Now, you have to hang it but before you do it you can put a touch of magic with some glitter on the fish!

CD Fish-Step 6 - It's Time To Enjoy Your Fish!!

The last step is to ... enjoy your decoration!!You can put it on the wall of your bedroom or living-room..

      So if it looks like both a chicken and a fish, would you say it's a chicken-fish or a fishy chicken? ;->

      What a great idea for keeping the kids busy and using up those old CDs. I bet these look great hanging from the ceiling in a kid's bedroom.

      The fish ends up looking more like a chicken with fins.

      What makes this lens extra special is the excellent children's art photographed in 6 steps. It really makes you want to try it. I will show my granddaughters. Squid-Angel blessed.
