How to Make Awesome Aquarium Craft:

Step 1: Draw and cut out a fish-bowl shape from construction paper -- make sure the shape is smaller than the size of the sandwich bag you have.

Step 2: Place the fish-bowl shape in the center of a different color of construction paper, and trace the shape. Cut out the paper inside the drawn lines (this will be called paper #1). You want the shape you cut out to be a bit smaller than the fish bowl shape you traced. Do the same to a second sheet of construction paper (this will be called paper #2).

Step 3: Draw a few fish on construction paper. Decorate them however you'd like -- you can be realistic, or you can be whimsical! Cut out the fish shapes.

Step 4: Using paper #1, staple the plastic bag around the edge of the cutout on all sides except the top.

Step 5: Put a handful of gravel in the bag, some Easter grass arranged like seaweed, and the paper fish you've drawn and cut out. Arrange the fish any way you want -- glue them in place inside the bag.

Step 6: Seal the bag, and staple the top to the paper. The bag should be stapled all the way around the edge of the cutout.

Step 7: Glue paper #2 over the top of paper #1, covering up the staples. To finish, glue the fish-bowl shape to the back of paper #1.

The next craft will take your fish out of the water and into the sky.
