We love this puffer fish craft because it only requires a few supplies. And if you don’t have googly eyes you can draw your own on white paper.

You can also create this using a fork to paint instead of the paper roll.

4. Keep stamping until you fill the page with a circle shape. You should have a lot of lines from the paper roll around the edge of the circle.

If you don’t have these lines, stamp around the edge with the paper roll to add more.
