Creation Day 5 : Birds and Fish

This week, Creation Day 5 revolves around the bird and the fish. I had a ton of fun putting this craft together. It may be my favorite in the group so far! It is still an economical paper plate craft, but the extra media elements make it seem so fun! The account of the fifth day of creation can be found in Genesis 1:20-23.

Use the other craft materials to make the paper plate pieces look like a fish and a bird. For the bird, glue the wiggle eye and the small beak triangle to the plate. Then glue a small feather to the front of the plate as a wing, and a larger feather to the back as a tail.
