When trying to think of a theme to go with for his birthday, I first looked at what he was interested in. Since he was really taking an interest in animals when reading to him and then picking them out on tv, I thought maybe a Safari theme. So then my creative brain started ticking away. I have always been one to first look around the house for re-usable things to use, as you can be surprised what you have that can be turned into something else before buying something new hey lets be honest our little family is not made of money heheh.
Dot Color Coding Labels - Found at office supply store. You can also use the filler paper reinforcements.
Cut the white rim off of one of the cups. This one will be used for the tail fins. Insert the tail cup into the fish-body about one inch. Using a sharp object punch a hole through the tail cup from the hole in the body cup. Insert a brass fastener into the holes on the fish-body cup and through the hole in the tail cup.
Put your hand inside the tail cup and flatten out the brad. Do the same thing on the other side of the fish. If you do not have brads you can just glue the tail to the inside of the body with a low temperature glue gun. Here's a handy tip that will make the cup fish easier to assemble! Before inserting the brass fastener, pull the prongs apart.
Hold the fastener prongs together while inserting it in the hole. When the prongs are all the way through they will open up making it easier to open them all the way from the inside of the cup.
Press the tail cup flat at the edge and cut it in the shape of a fin. Glue it closed with a low temperature glue gun. Cut the side fins from matching paper or card stock, fold down the end, and glue it to the fish. Decorate your fish with dot stickers or anything else you would like.
Handy tip - Remove the paper around the dot stickers before giving them to your children. The stickers will be much easier to remove.
To finish glue on to googly eyes. If you have preschool children, you can draw on the eyes with a Sharpie marker instead. You can glue craft sticks or straws to the bottom of the tail and head parts to make your puppet move, or just use your hands.
