Fishers of Men – CD Fish

Kids of all ages can make these cute cd fish. We hung them up on the wall, using a long piece of decorated tablecloth paper on which we wrote the bible passage: “Follow me and I will make you fishers of men”. Read the story of Jesus and his disciples.Supplies:

used/donated/cheap CD’s
Craft foam
Glue sticks
Google eyes
Yarn

Cut craft foam in shape of an hourglass (about 6 inches long and 2 to 2 1/2 inches wide. These will be the fins. Simply roll up one end and stick it thru the hole in the CD, fluff each side out. Cut craft foam into triangular tail shape (we used sticky sided craft foam and cut 2 per fish.) The kids didn’t have to wait for the glue to dry, they just stuck the two together (sticky sides facing) making sure the top of each triangle overlapped onto the CD to make the tail. Tails can be as big and fancy as you want! Cut craft foam mouths: cut a diamond shaped piece about 1 1/2 inches long. Fold this piece in half and cut a small triangle out of the inside, leaving a border around the edge. Keep folded and glue the tips of the diamond to each side of the CD to form a mouth. (can use sticky-sided foam for this also) Glue a google eye onto each side of the CD. Use yarn to hang the CD. We also made “fish hooks” to hang on our poster – using black pipecleaners and yarn.
