A Fish Called Andromeda ARTS & CRAFTS

To make your own Andromeda, assemble awesome materials. The secret to a magical fish is – (ssshhh) Don’t buy anything. Instead, use whatever you can find around the house. Some suggested materials include:

paper, newsprint, crayons, pencils, markers, a glue stick, tissue paper, yarn or string, cardboard, fabric scraps, stickers, stars, feathers, straws, paper plates, paper cups, pumpkin or sunflower seeds, dried leaves and grasses, bubble wrap, rubber bands, broken hair clips, buttons, etc. Try to reuse and recycle as much as possible.

Get Inspired.

You’ve already read A Fish Called Andromeda, but if you need additional ideas, check out a book on fish from your local library or visit an aquarium.

Start Drawing.

I bet, like Zuki, you can spend all afternoon sketching fish from your imagination.

Make Your Fish Real.

Take your fish from its flat, beautiful paper form (2 dimensional) and make it real (3 dimensional).
