You will need:

  • Plastic bottle
  • Paint (variety of colours)
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Silver card
  • Scissors
  • Glue


  1. Holding the bottle, top and bottom, twist in the middle to form the shape of the fish.
  2. Pour a mix of paints in and give it a shake to mix the colours; make sure not to shake too much as you want the colours to remain separate and not blend.
  3. Cut fins out of the silver card and glue onto bottle appropriately.
  4. Do the same with the eyes and leave to dry.

All items (or similar) are available from Play Resource Shop & Scrapstore.
