Fish in aquarium

Last week was the birthday of my son who, as you probably already know, has autism. I could talk for a whole week about how he is particularly, but this post is for something more specific because last week was his birthday.
My little crab turned 6 years old and for the first time he enjoyed his party to the fullest.

First of all, let me tell you something that moved us a lot and touched our hearts as parents, and that is that the guests were very respectful with him and even when they sang the song to him they did it super softly so that he did not feel discomfort in his ears. Isn’t it amazing?? 🥰

Well, the theme of his party was SeaWorld because Luciano can talk for hours and hours about whales, sharks, dolphins,crabs, etc … so I made this aquarium to the guests as souvenirs.
It was a success!! 🤩

They were all excited and loved their fishes! 🐠

This post is to explain you step by step how to make one.

I also want to tell you that I am finally working on my YouTube channel that was quite abandoned, so what better opportunity to retake it than a video with the step by step of this aquarium?

You can then see the video, which although it is spoken in Spanish, it has English subtitles and is super easy to understand.

  • 1 pair of 5mm safety eyes
  • 20grs of blue yarn

  • Yarn needle.
  • Stitch markers and scissors

  • 1 plastic pot transparent
  • A piece of transparent thread
  • Transparent tape
