Sea Life Paper Craft
Fish lovers will have a whole lot of fun, when they make this cute paper lionfish craft with my free printable template.
The lionfish certainly looks impressive with its spiky fins and bold colors, so the craft will make a beautiful display in your home.
Those spiky fins don’t just look scary, the fish are venomous and you do not want to get stung.
In recent years they have made their way to the Atlantic Ocean, which is not a good thing.
This invasive species is causing damage to the ecosystem.
You can use the fish’s natural colors for a realistic looking craft or your child can choose whatever wacky colors they want.
Either way, the paper fish will look great!
Have some fun under the sea!
