Shoebox Aquarium

This project is one of the longer arts and crafts, but after you finish it's really cute! (inspired by @almostmakesperfect on Instagram)

You'll need:

1. any small box like a shoe box or a beer box (yep we used a beer box, don't judge!)

2. a sheet of white paper (thicker is better)

3. a sheet of blue paper

4. something to color with like paints, crayons or markers

5. pipe-cleaners

6. scissors

7. string

8. tape


  1. Cut an opening on one side

  2. Cut the blue paper so that it fits inside the box and tape it. (This will be the water background).
