Pasta Shell Fish Crafts - cute summer arts & crafts project for kids.


I am beginning to think that there is nothing that cannot be made out of pasta shells. Because my daughter loves working with them just as much as I do, we are back with another round of pasta crafts. Tonight, our craft of choice is fish.

What you will need:

Jumbo pasta shells

Medium pasta shells

Bowtie pasta

Chick peas

Acrylic paint

Glue gun (use caution when operating a glue gun. Not recommended for small children.)



To assemble your fish, glue a medium pasta shell into the end of the jumbo shell.IMG_0595

Glue 2 more medium shells to the side of the jumbo shell to form fins.


Glue a piece of bowtie pasta to the other end of the jumbo shell to form the back fin.IMG_0599

Paint your fish with acrylic paints.


Paint a chick pea in white for each fish that you are creating.


Add a black dot in the center for the eye ball.


Glue the eyes to the painted fish to finish off the craft.
