Tropical Fish

This tropical fish is a fun, colorful and cheery project for the kids to create in the summer and adds a touch of Caribbean atmosphere to your home. If the parents or supervisors cut out the fish form, even the youngest of kids can help tear the papers and wad them into balls and glue them on the cardboard to decorate their fish.
