Start by drawing a fish shape on to some coloured card, I originally tried to do the whole shape as one freehand but it didn’t look that fish-y? Instead I found it looked much better to draw a normal fish shape and then add the fins afterwards.
Cut out your fish shape ready to decorate.
Next colour in your fish, to make this Fathers Day card as kid friendly as I could I’ve gone for finger painting – which I also think makes it into a nice keepsake. To make your paints easier for your child to use I recommend pouring a little onto a reusable plate first.
Make some eyes for your fish. I've glued on googly eyes but if you're trying to reduce the amount of plastic you use then cut out white circles from scrap paper and draw a black dot onto them to make the eyes instead.
On your white card write ‘Dad, you’re fin-tastic’ (dad jokes for Fathers Day? Absolutely!) and then stick on your fish underneath.
