Rainbow Fish Craft

Here's a fun craft to do with kids when you're using the Rainbow Fish books! I saw this tutorial from Crafting the Alphabet months ago on Pinterest, and was reminded of the idea when we started reading a bunch of the Rainbow Fish books this week. My version is double sided and without sequins (but I LOVE the idea of adding sequins for scales to the finished product).

You will need:
2 old CD's (per fish)
Glue
Glitter
Googly eyes 
Foam, in purple and yellow (thick paper is fine as well)

The Process:
Cut some fins out from your foam. Glue them onto the "top" of one CD, as shown.

 Once your fins are adhered, glue to the "tops" of your two CD's together to cover the ends of the foam.
 Glue another fin on top of the whole in the middle of the CD.
 (I added a few more fins when I got to this point because I realized that the pictures in the book showed the fish with five total fins.)

Add a yellow mouth.
 Use glue to create some squiggly lines on the foam, then sprinkle glitter on top.
 Add a googly eye and voila! Rainbow Fish!
