Fish Picture Craft

New use for Cupcake Cases

Supply List:

  • Background card paper, color of choice
  • 2-3 Cupcake cases
  • Glue stick or craft glue
  • 2-3 Buttons
  • 2-3 Joggle eyes
  • Green paper
  • Scissors

Directions for Caregivers:

This is a fun one-on-one activity. Add some reminiscence and chat about fish. “Have you ever gone fishing? Do you like to eat fish? How many different types of fish can you think of?”

Making these easy-level pictures is a great activity for a small group.

Supply cupcake cases in a variety of colors and everyone’s picture will be unique. 

Early and mid-stage memory care/dementia.

Make as shown in the video. Explain the activity and bring the supplies needed.

You may need to give some assistance with cutting out and gluing.

Late stage memory care / dementia.

Watching someone make a craft can be a nice activity as a passive observer, and watching the video is also an alternative. The person may like to help choose colors, etc., for the different elements if they cannot physically participate.

About this Activity

No previous crafting experience is needed for this easy-level craft.

If you choose to make it on a larger paper, you can add lots of fish and seaweed and create an excellent display for your wall.
