"Fish in the aquarium" - application

The underwater world is always interesting for children, because its nature is so different from the nature of sushi. Sea plants, animals and fish attract kids with bright and unusual colors. In order to acquaint the child with the marine life, we suggest you make a craft out of colored paper - the application "Fishes in an Aquarium". In this article you will find two options for a master class on this topic - for kids (they need adult help) and for older kids. And the crumbs of the age of 1.5-2 years old can be offered to make the simplest application in the form of an aquarium by running the fish from geometric shapes.

Simple application "Aquarium"

2. For its production we will need: white and double-sided colored paper, gouache of two colors (yellow and blue), a sponge for dishes, glue, scissors, "running" eyes.

3. We paint with a gouache and a sponge a white sheet of paper, visually dividing it into two unequal parts: yellow sand and blue sea.

4. Cut out the elements of the application from colored paper:

  • colorful fish (you can pre-make a template);
  • brown corals;
  • green algae;
  • sea ​​pebbles of different shades of pink, red and brown.

5. Gradually paste all the details on the painted and dried leaf: first algae and stones, then corals and fish, trying to evenly place it all on the sheet.

The original description is in English, but everything is perfectly clear from the pictures. Just in case I give small comments.

Scheme print in duplicate.

Cut the grass or corals, fish. Coral is, and the goldfish will have to search for themselves. Here is what I found in Yandex.

Glue corals and fish. Only on one side of the large and small ovals! Do not glue the cuts; ovals will then be inserted between them. I think it’s necessary to take color paper two-sided so that the card looks good from all sides. Fish should be double-sided!

Getting started:

First 2 large ovals and 2 large rectangles.

Then 2 small rectangles. Look at the picture, which side should be located grass.

Add small ovals.

That's it, the aquarium is ready! This is a pop-up card, i.e. it can fold.


For inspiration - even a goldfish, but in the technique of Quilling. True, beautiful ?! Found here.

Successes to you, happiness and fulfillment of desires!
