Funky Fish

How to make it?

  • Start by getting a toilet paper roll and flatten it slightly.
  • Cut the toilet paper roll along the lines (see above)
  • Fold in the flaps to create a tail.
  • Paint the fish with polka dots, stripes, whatever you like!
  • Now draw an eye or use a googly eye, and you’re done!

Fun Fact

Did you know that a group of fish is called a school? And fish can form schools containing millions of fish, that’s a big school!

How to make it?

  • Once again, get a toilet paper roll and flatten it slightly.
  • Cut the toilet paper roll along the lines (see above)
  • Paint the whale whatever color you like, we chose a classic blue!
  • Cut a small hole for the blow hole and tie some white or blue ribbon to make it look like water is spraying out!
  • And finally create the eye!

Fun Fact

Did you know that whales have blubber to keep them warm in the cold winter water? No need for gloves, scarves, hats, and big puffy jackets!

One-of-a-Kind Octopus

One-of-a-Kind Octopus

How to make it?

  • Get the toilet paper roll, but don’t flatten it this time!
  • Cut along the lines (see above) to create 8 strips.
  • Curl each of the strips up to create the tentacles.
  • Time to paint! Add some dots under the tentacles to create the look of suction cups!
  • And finally add some eyes!

Fun Fact

Did you know that an octopus has three hearts and nine brains? No wonder they are so smart!
