DIY AG Fish Tank!

IMGP5574

Hi, everyone!  Today I will be showing you how to make your American Girl doll (or any 18 inch doll) a fish tank! Tropical Fish on Apple iOS 9.3

So, first you will need:

  • A insect carrier (you can get one for around three dollars in dollar stores)
  • Tape
  • String (optional)
  • A toy fish
  • Toilet paper roll
  • Scissors
  • Rocks
  • Green paper
  • Sand

First take your insect carrier and fill it up with

sand until you can’t see the bottom of the carrier anymore.

Then you can put as many rocks in it as you want.

Then take your green paper and cut many small strips.

These will be the plants in the water.

Then you can put them in the rocks.

But if you are doing them in bundles, you should tape them together

so that they will stay in place.

Then take out your toilet paper roll and cut it about three inches tall.

Then you can decorate however you want!

Then stick it in with everything else.

Now take your fish and tie it to the top of the carrier.

If you are using a fish with a base, I would put it on a rock.

Then there you have it!

If you want, you can print this out and tape it to the back for your fish tank!

You can make a whole bunch of these for your dolls!  You can also make hamster cages, mouse cages, or even a reptile house!  Wouldn’t it be cool if you made a pet store with this idea?!  Later this year I could do a post on how to make a pet shop for your dolls!

    1. That would be a super cool idea! I bet the hamster cage is pretty cute! I will have to try that when we go to a beach, and get little minnows their! Then you can put fresh clean water in their, the put real fish tank plants in it! Thanks for the idea! 😛
