Fold 2-3 sheets of colored paper in half. Draw and cut out several half circles along the folded line to form small circular shapes of paper that are folded in the middle. Feel free to vary their sizes.
Glue or tape the folded side of each circle to the fish to form its scales.
Draw your fish's eyes and mouth.
Glue or tape two popsicle sticks to the back of your fish to transform it into a puppet.
