Stone Fish Craft

If you have a pile of stones lying around the garden get creative and turn them into pet fish!  This simple stone fish craft is easy enough for toddlers and preschoolers to enjoy. Using chalk pens on white stones looks really effective and kids will love playing them.

How to make fish from stones




Start by painting your stones white and leave them to dry.

Decorate the stones using chalk pens. Other pens would probably work just as well but I love the vibrant colours that the chalk pens produce.

All ages can have fun designing a fish, whether they want to do a detailed design, quick face or a scribble.

When you have completed your designs varnish the stones with mod podge glue and sealer. 

Cut out some triangles of felt and stick them onto the fish to create tails and fins.
