2. Making an Aquarium from a Shoe box:


We all must have seen a beautiful aquarium at shops or even at our relative's home etc but that takes a lot of dedication to clean the wanted, to feed the fishes and all. So here we are going to make a virtual one which may serve a real purpose.
Items required: - Shoe box, card board, thread, a pair of scissors, fevicol, water colors and some colored paper or craft paper.
(i) Cut the side of a shoe box and make it appear as a open box, now color it from inside so that inner look may appear blue.
(ii) Inside should have 3-D look so cut a paper and draw some herbs on it as well as some rocks so that they may look appealing.
(iii) Draw some beautiful fishes and paste them, and in the main area.
