Download Activity Guide

  • Small coloured pebbles will be required to complete this activity.
  • Step 1Put a small handful of coloured pebbles inside your jar, so that they cover the bottom. You may like to add one or two small shells as well.
  • Step 2Twist a couple of chenille stems into curly shapes to make your seaweed.
  • Step 3Mould your little fishy out of CleverClay. Give him some small wiggle eyes so he can see where he’s going. Attach the wiggle eyes by pushing them firmly into the clay so that they stick.
  • Step 4Cut a short length of craft line – it should be long enough for the fish to dangle from the lid of your jar, to just above the pebbles. Use a pencil or the end of a brush to push a hole into the top of your fish. Insert the craft line into the hole, and push the CleverClay in around the craft line to make it secure. Attach the other end of the line to the lid of the jar with glue. Allow to dry.
  • If your line is too long, and your fish sits on the pebbles when the lid is on the jar, simply add a little bit more glue to the lid and shorten the line by stick a bit more of it to the lid.
  • Step 6Fill your jar with water. You may like to add a small drop of liquid watercolour. Attach the lid tightly to your jar. Swirl it around gently so that the watercolour mixes evenly, turning the water blue.
  • Step 7Decorate the outside of your jar however you like! We used shells, jute twine and burlap to give our jar a beachy, seaside look. Attach your embellishments with glue and allow to dry.
