Recycled Yogurt Pot Fish Bowl Craft


We love finding ways to use recycled materials in our crafts, and every time I see these little yogurt pots I always think that they look like fish bowls, so today we finally made them into fish bowls!

What you'll need:

  • empty yogurt pots (these Activia ones are perfect, but really any will work)
  • blue glitter paint
  • paint brush
  • glue
  • foil
  • scissors
  • fish beads or confetti
  • blue ribbon

First we painted our yogurt pots with blue glittery paint (you can add glitter to paint but we happened to have one that already had it inside, which was perfect!) We painted just the inside of the pots, but you could paint the outside as well (if you have more patience than we do!)

Next we cut our foil into fish shapes.  This was trickier than we thought it would be, but lots of fun to experiement with the scissors and work on cutting skills with foil.  In the end I cut out a few fish shapes for Ethan to draw on and we used the little bits that he cut out as well.

We then stuck the foil fish to the inside of our fish bowl.  As our paint was still wet they stuck quite well without any glue.

Then we used the glue to stick on the fish beads (fish confetti would also look great, but we've run out).  

Then we put glue all around the top of the yogurt pot on the outside and stuck the wavy ribbon around to look like the surface of the water.

Then we left our fish bowl to dry and put it up on the windowsill, it looks lovely with the sun shining through it!
