Paper Plate Aquarium Craft for Kids

Recently we did this beautiful paper plate aquarium craft. This is really a fun and simple craft idea. Kids of all ages will love it! Kids aged 3-5 can also easily do this activity.   

From our recent holiday to Andamas my son had collected some stones from the beach. I was looking for craft ideas to make use of them. Finally, we decided to make a mini aquarium with it.
