Goldfish are always a great gift idea, but over time they often end up being neglected. So we thought we'd give you the opportunity to create your own fish. These are maintenance free, last longer, and can even be hung on the wall! To do this, you just need a pie tin, cut slots in it. Then, glue an underwater design to the bottom of the box. You can then add felt or colored paper fish by inserting them through the slots made on the sides of the box. What could be a more original gift than fish 2.0? If you want to make a more elaborate aquarium rich in underwater creatures, just click HERE ! Blup Christmas to all!

They can then put them in the sweet nothings jar that they can decorate as they wish. This attention will warm the heart and will allow to read, every day, a sweet word signed by your children to have a smile.
