    Cover the CD With Tissue Paper

    • First, have your child cut their tissue paper into small squares. Set aside.
    • Now grab your glue and have children paint/draw a thick layer of glue all over the CD, making sure they get every inch covered (it doesn’t matter which side of the CD you choose to cover with glue).
    • Next, have your child place the tissue paper squares on top of the glue until the CD is completely covered and has a nice mosaic design to it.

    Add Fins

    • Cut out some fins and lips out of the cardstock and glue those onto the decorated CD.
    • Then, finish off by gluing on some colorful rhinestones, and of course your googly eyes, so your fish can see.
