Summer Craft: Shiny Fish

Our favorite kind of craft is one that allows kids to be supremely creative with things that are easily found around the house. This craft is a great use for leftover cereal boxes and provides an opportunity for kids to create any shape they can imagine. Watch them create an entire ocean of shimmering animals!


  • Aluminum foil
  • Cereal box or card stock
  • Markers
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • String


  • Use cereal box or card stock and cut out a fish shape. 
  • Cover fish with aluminum foil with shiny side out. Tape the foil down. 
  • Use markers to decorate the fish. 
  • Make another fish and tape them together so that both sides of the fish are decorated. 
  • Hang it up using string.
