Instructions

  1. Select 2 different shades of the same colored craft paper (1 for the body base and the other one for the fins), blue paper for the water splash, and a different colored paper for the bottom side of the whale). Trace the patterns on the selected craft papers and cut them out nicely.  
  2. Attach the bottom part of the paper whale along the bottom side of the body base cut-out. 
  3. Attach one fin on the front side of the body base and the other fin on the backside of the base (opposite to the previous fin) but making sure that it is visible from the front side. 
  4. Attach the water splash pattern right on the top of the head part of the paper whale body base. 
  5. Use a black marker pen to draw the eyes and mouth of the paper whale. You can add blush patterns on both cheeks by using a pink highlighter pen.
