What you need: Old CDs - two per fish Sharpie markers, as many colours as you like Sheets of craft foam, coloured paper, etc.

Craft jewels, sequins, buttons, glitter, etc.

Craft glue Art brushes in various sizes (optional) Hot glue gun (optional) Instructions and ideas: GIVE each child two CDs and encourage them to draw "scales" on the fish body with markers.

Colour them in to make whatever pattern they like such as body, one colour, fins another colour...

Children can use their imaginations and make each fish their own.

Decorate both CDs to make the fish two-sided.

Glue on craft acrylic crystals (flat back), sequins, and whatever else to create your own fish!

Glue one 'googly' eye on each CD.

Cut fins and the nose out of the craft foam or coloured paper.

Again, be creative, fold paper like a fan for fins. Glue these 'fins' to the backside of only one of the CDs.

Once completed, use craft glue or a hot glue gun to glue the non-decorated sides of the CDs together to complete the fish.

Poke a small hole in the fish's top fin.

Loop fishing line, string or thread through the hole and knot securely.

The The Now, hang your fish wherever you like!
