Tropical fish come in so many different colors and patterns. This simple craft releases your little one’s creativity as they design their own tropical fish! Call the West Wyandotte Library at (913) 295-8250 ext. 5 to reserve your kit or request one during your regular curbside pickup. Kits are available now while supplies last.

Each take-home kit contains the following:

  • 2 plates
  • 2 googly eyes
  • 1 pack of crayons
  • 1 glue stick
  • 1 set of instructions

Once you’ve made your fish check out the Monterey Bay Aquarium live tank cams!  https://www.montereybayaquarium.org/animals/live-cams

I recommend the coral reef, moon jellyfish, or shark tank cams!

Here are some tips to help protect not only tropical but local fish!

  • Reduce your plastic use.
    • A lot of plastic ends up in our waterways. Plastic that is eaten by wildlife can make them really sick!
  • Don’t let the water run.
    • When brushing your teeth turn the water off. This helps preserve the amount of useable water we have in the world.
  • Be a part of a cleanup.
    • Helping clean up a local water system keeps your native plants and animals happy and healthy. Plus it makes your community look great!
