Carefully trim each of the spaces on the egg carton, you can trim them all if you want to make multiple characters.

  • For the whale:
  1. Paint the cardboard with light blue and let it dry.
  2. Draw the fins (2) and the tail of the fish on blue paper, making sure to leave a space. Glue the tail on the back and the fins on the sides.
  3. Fold a white paper horizontally and trim two thin strips. Glue them on top of the cardboard.
