Koi fish painting for kids

The kids painted koi fish today in the Studio. It’s super easy even a toddler can do it! 😀

Koi fish (Japanese carp) painting

I drew and cut out two templates (as shown above) for each of the kids.

Get the kids to paint the entire drawing block blue using sponge. My kid insists to paint it green as he said the water in the pond is always green!

Place the first template and start dabbing white paint over the holes in the template. Let dry.

Place the second template over the white paint and dab orange paint.

Repeat the process if you wish to have more than one fish.


  1. very cool…. you should frame it too and display it somewhere in Ethan’s room.. that would be cool

    You wouldn’t be able to provide a scaned template for this would you? I would love for my daughter to try it!
