One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish Craft
With Dr. Seuss’s Birthday coming up (which just so happens to be National Read Across America Day) I thought that I’d share some fun Dr. Seuss crafts. If you’re a parent or teacher reading your kids Dr. Seuss books, you’ll love this paper craft that will help bring the story to life!
Read on for the step-by-step guide for the 1 Fish, 2 Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish craft!
Things You Will Need:

You can use quilling strips or you can also prepare your own quilling strips from colored craft papers or colored cardstock paper. Use the slotted quilling tool to make loose coil.
Press any one side of that coil to make a teardrop shape.
Make 2 quilled teardrop shapes, 1 big and the other one relatively smaller. Keep a small part of the big teardrop shape’s open end outside of the shape.
Take the small teardrop shape and flatten its curved side to create a triangle shape.
Press the middle point of the triangle shape’s any one straight ends to make an arrowhead shape.
Apply glue on the big teardrop shape’s extra part on the outside.
Join the arrowhead shape’s pointy end with the glued part of the teardrop shape. The fish pattern is ready! Now attach the googly eye on the teardrop shape to complete the quilled fish.
Cut out a small half-moon shape from pink colored craft paper; this will be the mouth of the fish. Glue it on the teardrop shape, below the googly eye. Allow the glue dry.
Did You Ever Fly a Kite in Bed?
