Kids can have a whale of a time with these crusty crustateons and chum sucking creatures of the sea. Turn your holiday tree into an oceanic wonderland with colorful ornaments of voracious great barracudas, white sharks and King Crab baubles.
These cute little ichthyes and crusty cetaceans will make fun and fanciful ornaments. Make fish theme Christmas tree decorations from bits of cloth scraps or trace onto multi-colored foam sheets or other craft materials to make soft or stuffed ornaments.
Fish are given historic importance in most countries and cultures. One common tall tale about sea creatures involves Jonah, the prophet who was swallowed by a "great fish" (or whale). Sea and fresh water creatures appear in books, songs and poetry. Hans Christian Andersen published the children's story "Little Mermaid" in the year 1836. This popular tale tells of a half-human, half-fish girl who falls in love with a human prince and gives up life in the sea in order to gain a human soul.
In some cultures fish symbolism represents fertility and abundance.

Check out the paper mache Frog Army Chess set I made using celluclay and acrylic paints. The whole process took about a month and is detailed on facebook.
