I really like using boxes we get in the mail for other things before recycling them, so I made this small aquarium toy. Instead of taping the fish to the top of the box, I decided to make it more interactive by cutting slits in the top and tying buttons to the threads. This way the fish can be moved around like puppets. It’s actually really beautiful to watch. When you slide the buttons, the fish spin and dance, creating a happy swimming effect. It’s a great recyclable toy. You could leave the back and sides of the box attached. I just wanted to create a space that was open and light. It would be fun to paint the inside of the box too though. Try it out!
Update: You may also use my Blackfish Cafe Coloring Sheets to create your marine life. Just color and cut them out!
