• Pencils, crayons or markers
• Yarn or embroidery floss of various colors, cut in 6” lengths
• White craft glue
Draw a circle in the middle of your piece of cardboard. In the middle of the circle,
draw the outline of a fish. Draw other fish, ocean creatures, seaweed and shapes
in the area outside of the circle.
Spread glue on the body of the fish drawing in the center of the circle. Place
pieces of yarn on the outside line of the fish body, then fill in the body with the
yarn strands. Cover the tail in the same way. Next, spread glue around the fish
inside the circle.
Working out from the fish, cover the entire circle in yarn. Then work on the
shapes outside of the circle. Spread glue on each shape, then cover each shape
with yarn. To complete your picture, work on the space in between each of the
shapes until all of the space is covered with yarn. Take a look at some Mexican
