Once again I have to give credit to an amazing site called Krokotak.com. This Angler fish project is just too clever with its underbite, spike teeth and pipe cleaner antennae.
- 16″ square of cardboard cut in half
- Paper cutter, old school style with arm that can chop (recommended)
- Utility scissors
- Black Sharpie marker, chisel tip
- Tempera cake paints
- Pipe cleaner
- Food skewers
- PREP: Use a paper cutter to cut rectangles that are 8″ x 16″. For young students, cut the notched tail and mouth.
- Students draw a design on their fish with a pencil.
- The design is traced with a thick black Sharpie marker.
- Students use tempera paint to fill in the designs. Let dry.
- Students retrace the lines to cover any paint that got on them.
- The skewers are used to poke holes in the mouth where students want their teeth to be. The end of the skewer is broken off and stuck in the hole.
- A skewer is also used to poke a hole where the pipe cleaner is to be placed. The pipe cleaner is curled and placed in the hole.
