Step by Step instructions
1. Start both a line of loops from edge to edge of paper. Make loops BIG! 

* helpful tip; a more random loop looks better than a perfectly straight loopy line. 
2. Find the point where the loop line joins... On the outside of that joint make a curved line for the fish tail. 
3. At the top of the loop, make a fin. At the bottom, make another fun. Inside the loop make a side fun. At the round part of the loop make a face. Continue on all loops. 
4. Add more detail to fish. 
5. Finish all fish. 
6. Add details to background (bubbles, sand, plants...
Color if desired...

Instead of paper for the fish, we drew them on tin foil with permanent markers.
This is beautiful!
Warning: You do have to have more patience though. The tin foil is delicate and hard to cut. It could give very small cuts to the children as well. Need to warn them about that before starting. Also, the sharpie maker will rub off if handled to much during cutting. It may need to be retouched after gluing.
