A few days before April 1, the children get impatient: "So, when will we be able to make jokes and stick fish on the back?" To make them wait while occupying them intelligently, here are 10 activities to do with them to prepare April Fools so beautiful that they will keep them until at least May!

Japanese carp 'Koinobori'

Squirrelly minds The Japanese do not celebrate April 1st, but children's day on May 5th. On this occasion, they make flying carp that fly in the wind ... To make them, cover a roll of toilet paper with double-sided tape and cover it with scales of all colors cut from crepe paper. Add a tail in strips (always crepe paper), eyes cut from white paper with a black circle in the middle, and a string to hang them on the back!

Hand-shaped fish puppets

Blitsy Children will love these puppets cut according to the shape of their little hands… We trace the outline of their hand on colored paper, we cut and we let them stick removable eyes and self-adhesive rhinestones… And presto, we stick the all with a little scotch on an ice cream stick.


Gabulle in Wonderland We love these fish that fly in the air when we throw them in the air! Ultra simple to make, they will delight young and old alike. The tutorial is on the blog of Gabulle in Wonderland.

A fish in a CD
