How to make a Hangry Fish


1 What you need:   An A4 piece of paper
                            An hb pencil
                            Coloured felt tips
                            Black marker pen/felt tip for outlines

2 Begin by folding the piece of paper in half

3 Rotate so the fold is at the top and fold back the top layer so the bottom meets the top fold

4 When the paper is unfolded it should like this, with a fold across the centre, and then through the centre of the top half

5 Draw the fish in pencil when the paper is folded, making sure the lips meet at the fold

6 Unfold the paper and draw the hangry open-mouthed fish with all his pointy teeth

7 Add in details such as the little fish, bubbles and scales


8 Outline your final design with black marker pen. Do this folded first and then open and join the lines

9 Now colour them in. Make sure to colour in the folded fish first, to make sure all lines and colours match up

10 Open him up and fill in the inside
