I originally made this as a craft for my 2 nephews and my niece, then I made another to use in my 5th grade school project on the Great Barrier Reef. Not only is this a great project for your little ones or as a good touch in a marine school project, even as an aquatic addition to your cubicle! It's pretty simple, and customizable. Hope you have fun with it!

Step 1: Materials

This is all the stuff you will need:


Hot Glue Gun (though I'm sure superglue would work, though you might need a lot)

Thumbtack (to hang it)

Fishing String (to attach it to the thumbtack)

Sharpie (or similar bleed-mark making device)

Cardstock (construction paper works, but I'm not too fond of the graininess of it, cardstock is much smoother and a bit thicker)

2 CDs that you don't need

Googly eyes (medium size works good, though the super-large ones look hilarious!)

<p>This is a good project for kids. Although coloring the CD's would give you some more effect i suppose, but that said. A nice instrucable and i have so many unsused CDs. </p>
This is sooooooo cute. You did a great job on your instuctions. I only had one problem, which is nothing, when I went to save the template to word so I could work with it, there was no way to save it from the site. <br> <br>I don't mind though. I love this. <br>Thank you <br>amazin1953@yahoo.com <br>
