About: hey I'm timberfox and I love science I live in Belgium and I hope you like my ideas

would you like to make your own flying fish?

Step 1: Materials

you will need:

- a sheet cardboard

- tissue paper

- a stick (thats stronger than on the picture)

- a rope that is longer than 1.2 meters

- tape

- little balls

- dot-markers and glitter glue (optional)

- scissors

Step 2: Cut and Paste

cut a piece of cardboard off of about 30 cm. And stick it to the tissue paper

Step 3: Your Own Fish Patern

draw with the dot markers your personal patern on your fish.

pay attention if your working with letters if you make a fault its too late

CAUTION : dont draw eyes we will make these later.

Step 4: Taping It Together

tape the sides on each other.

you can also use glue but then you'll need to wait.

Step 5: Give Your Fish a Tail

Cut on the end of you fish little strips.

Now you fish have a tail.

Step 6: Make Sure Your Fish Can See

take two balls. And make two dots with the glitter glue. Additionaly you can make a dot with a marker but you don't have a pop out effect like by the glue. And after that stick it on your fish.

Step 7: Cut That Rope

cut about 4 pieces of 30 cm an stick it in the inside of the fish his mouth. After all doing this tie it on the stick.
