Flying Paper Fish

Flying Paper Fish Cut Files

I am always looking for fun little crafts I can do with my grandkids.  I saw a video one day of these really cute ‘moveable’ fish and knew I had to figure out how to make them.  After some trial and error, I was finally able to get them figured out.

Flying Paper Fish

My granddaughter already loves her “Pying Pish” and was so excited to show it to her mommy and daddy.

These fun, Flying Fish can be used for a lot of different things.

Here are just a few ideas:

  • Tie them to fishline and create a mobile
  • Create them for a classroom
  • Vacation Bible School
  • Creative play time

Be sure and share your ideas.  Don’t forget, you can resize, and mix and match colors to create your very own school of fish.

Putting the fish together is so quick and easy.  All you do is fold it like the photo, then glue the flap on the bottom together, add the bottom lip, eyes, fins and tail.  If you want to push the head a little flatter, you can do that also.


Have fun!

    What a cute idea! My grandchildren will love this, as fishing with grandpa is a favorite passtime when they visit.

    HA! I just watched a video on YouTube on these fish and thought…”hmmmm, I can make that with Paz”. Well, you beat me to it. Thank you 😀 Are you living in my head? 😀

    Saw the video on FB a few days ago and handmade them with my granddaughter. At six, it wasn’t easy to cut all the pieces out. Your cutting file will make it so much easier! I plan to cut out several and mail them to each of my granddaughters. Thank you for this file!
