An easy-to-make yet super fun paper craft for kids. This cute Japanese koi fish is made from paper and unwanted old magazines. Children can hang their homemade paper fish from the ceiling, and a bedroom full of them is really stunning!

You'll need these materials: construction paper, colorful old magazines (you can also reuse catalogs, cereal boxes colored paper scraps, or even aluminum foil scraps for this kids paper craft project), glue, stapler, crayons, 2  crepe paper or metallic streamers (cut into a few inches long), and some yarn.


How to make paper fish:

1. On a large piece of paper, draw a big fish. Then place another piece of paper underneath, and cut out both pieces of paper. You'll get 2 paper fish.


2. Cut out as many circles as you can from magazines, or catalogs, etc. These circles are the fish scales, and you want enough to cover its body.


3. Now, glue them onto both sides of the body of the fish.


4. Using crayons or markers, decorate the fish's head, fins, and tail.


5. Staple both sides of the fish together, and then staple the ends of crepe paper ribbons inside the fish tail.


6. Punch 2 holes on the fish's face. Thread some yarn through. Viola, the children can now hang their handmade paper Japanese koi fish anywhere they want! Have fun!
