With just a fork and some paint, this adorable little guy is incredibly easy to make with your preschooler.

  • A gluestick
  • A fork
  • A paper plate

Instructions:

  1. Cut out two small circles and one large circle out of the white paper for the eyes and mouth.

2. Cut out two small circles and one large circle out of the black paper that will fit inside the white circle pieces.

4. Pour a blob of paint onto the paper plate.

5. Dip the fork into the paint and spread on the green construction paper in a rough, ball shape. The spike pattern from the fork should be visible to make the puffer fish spikes.

7. If the paint is still wet, you can place the mouth and eye circles directly onto the puffer fish’s body. Otherwise, stick them down with glue.
