Blow Fish Toy

I made a sketch for this idea awhile ago, and just came across it in my drawer this morning, so I thought we should give it a try. All you do is make the fish (using the template and the directions on the sketch below), thread the string through the straw that's inside the fish, then tape the string ends to your wall. Once it's on the string, you blow the fanned out tail and make the fish zoom down the line. We got it to zoom pretty fast. And making it was fast and entertaining too. I'm going to print some more out so we can color them. It might also be cool to make a couple of fish and lines so two people could have a race. If you try them out, feel free share your photos on the Made by Joel Facebook page!
