Foam Fish Pencil TopperS
Today we have a foam fish craft that the kids will love. This is a simple and easy activity for the home or the classroom setting. This craft promotes the development of fine motor skills as young children draw and cut using scissors. It’s also fun and you can encourage kids to talk and discuss the craft as they create their fish pencil toppers. These can make a great gift for a family member or a classmate and you can use different colours to add variety.
Supplies For This Fish PENCIL TOPPER CRAFT

How To Make FISH PENCIL TOPPERS
We free handed ours.
You can do the same by cutting out a simple oval shape and gently fanning the tail to create a fish effect.
We cut out some small shell shapes with scalloped edges for a top and side fin.
Just add a dab of glue and press into place as shown until secure.
Finish your fish face by cutting a small heart out of pink or red foam and pressing it to the mouth of the fish.
Just add some glue (hot glue works best) and press into place.
