Today for our monthly kids craft stars challenge, we made a pufferfish/blowfish craft for an ocean theme! I had bought this bouncy ball at Walgreens awhile back for my puppy for around $1 and I thought it’d make the perfect stamp for the fish. They sell them at a lot of stores so keep your eye out…they blink colors when you bounce them!
- White and yellow paint
- Black and white paper
- Wax paper
- Black sharpie
- Pointy bouncy ball
Start by dipping the bouncy ball in white paint and have the kids make dots in a circle on a black sheet of paper. Then around the edges do outward strokes so it looks like the pufferfish’s spikes. Add some yellow paint to make it colorful!
Cut out some eyes and a mouth with white paper. Take a black sharpie and draw in the pupils and inside of the mouth. Cut two fins out of wax paper and add details with a sharpie. Glue all the pieces on and you’re done!
