To start the children�s craft, take an old coffee can or something of the same size. Put a slit in the plastic cover to accommodate coins. Have them decorate the outside anyway that they would like from things around the house. Add character to it by giving it a label such as �Wishes.� Have your child put the picture of the article in the coffee can and secure the lid.
If this is a young child, give them household chores that they can handle. Reward them with money for the job well done. This will work well for teaching your child that they have to work for things and that they don�t always come so easy. This will also give them the incentive to do some extras things in order to receive additional funds. Depending on what they want they can save the entire amount or you can add to the fund at any time. You will be surprised at the enthusiasm this will create. Once they have achieved this goal you can move on to another wish that needs to be earned.

Take two large plastic disposable bowls and cut a large hole in the middle of one of the bowls. Take the other and cover or color the inside of the bowl blue. Glue cracker goldfish on the inside bowl. You can get very creative when designing this craft. For instance you can use pieces of silk greenery and rocks to line the bottom of the bowl. This will give the likeness to an actual aquarium. When you are done with the inside of the aquarium attach the bowl that has the large hole over the other bowl so that they form a �ball.�
Pull a string through the top of the connected bowls if you would like to hang this new fish tank craft in your child�s room. Now you have your very own aquarium!
