DIY cardboard fish

DIY cardboard fish: why fishes? Well tomorrow it’d April the first and here in France that is how we call April’s fool : “poisson d’avril”.

Every year we craft fishes from cardboards like last year we did with toilet paper rolls. This year I was looking for another zero waste activity so I thought that these foil chocolate wrappers would be perfect as fish scales. We try to avoid them and as your know we avoid sugar as much as possible (specially for the girls) but we (my husband and I) do love a chocolate bar from time to time.😋

How-to

You can check the video tutorial if you scroll down, but the how-to is pretty simple: draw a fish on a cardboard (if you can recycle something, it’ll be a plus!) Cut it, also cut the scales with paper news and chocolate wrappers, glue them to the cardboard, add some color to the face and fins and it will be done! I added a fun tail with just a long fastener.

I have never been a fan of pranks and April’s fool is definitely not one of my favorite celebrations, crafting fishes for that day has become a new tradition that I am loving!

Here’s last’s year version with toilet paper rolls:

J’ai vu 3 chats bleus, à la queue leu-leu
Marchant sur un fil
 Poisson d’avril !

J’ai vu un chameau faire du vĂ©lo
Tout autour d’une üle
 Poisson d’avril !

J’ai vu un gros ver en hĂ©licoptĂšre
Traversant la ville
 Poisson d’avril !

J’ai vu une vache avec des moustaches
Et de trùs longs cils
 Poisson d’avril !

J’ai vu 10 corbeaux assis sur le dos
D’un vieux crocodile
 Poisson d’avril !
