Need a tiny project to fulfill that need for a little bit of creativity? Why not make some of these fun fish shaped gift tags that are perfect for Purim, or any time really! And if you don't need any gift tags, so use them as ornaments or make a mobile or even combine them with the stuffed paper fish I shared with you last week.
This is a fun project for all ages, and especially great for those who love to doodle but never really do anything with those doodles! And this is also a great opportunity to discuss what makes a fish kosher, namely scales and fins, and how to incorporate these into a doodle design.
- cereal box cardboard
- colored card stock
- black markers, a thick one and a thin one
- double stick tape or a glue stick
- a hole punch and string
How To: Draw a very basic outline of a fish on a piece of thin cardboard, and cut out leaving a large margin around the outline. Doodle your design on the fish. Cover the back of the fish with double sided tape, or the adhesive of your choice, and affix to a piece of colored paper of some kind. Cut out fish once again, this time cutting a bit closer to the outline. Punch a hole in the fish's mouth, thread with a piece of string or ribbon and you've made a fantastic gift tag!
