How To Make A Wooden Puffer Fish Craft
Begin by downloading and printing the puffer fish template. Trace and cut out the Pufferfish fins and tail onto yellow cardstock.
Next paint your egg yellow. I made the killer whale and Sea turtle at the same time. If you want to make a number of puffer fish, paint as many eggs as you need.
Paint the belly of the puffer fish a light brown.
Allow the paint to dry completely.
Glue the cardstock fins and tail onto the puffer fish.
Use a pencil to draw eyes onto the fish.
Once you are satisfied with how they look, trace over the pencil with black marker or a black paint pen.
Use a black paint pen or marker to add detail to the fins and tail.
Draw spikes all over the body of the fish with black marker or a black paint pen.
Draw a smile on the front of the fish with black marker or a black paint pen. Your Puffer fish is now complete.
