After watching Finding Nemo as a kid, I dreamed of visiting Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. 15 years later, that dream came true after I visited with my boyfriend (now husband), and oh boy, was it incredible! As this iconic Pixar movie has a soft spot in my heart, I had to do a series on Finding Nemo coloring pages.
While creating these illustrations, I was very spoilt for choice, as there are so many iconic characters and scenes to choose from, so I hope you find your favorite! Included below are Nemo, Squirt, Dory, Marlin, Crush, Bruce, Nigel, Gill, Darla, and Mr. Ray, to name a few!

10 Craft Ideas to do With Finding Nemo Coloring Pages
Finding Nemo is one of the most popular animated movies of all time!
If those coloring pages featuring this famous fish are piling up, here’s how to use them.
1. Party Under the Sea
This engaging craft is perfect for a classroom or bedroom as it creates a colorful wall. Have all the youngsters color and cut out Nemo and set their creations aside.
Next, decorate a section of the wall with green and blue paper streamers. This quickly and easily creates the illusion of an ocean.
All the youngsters should then tape their cutouts to the streamers in any random fashion, for a Nemo-theme that’s larger than life.
2. Nemo Water Balloon
To begin this craft, the youngster can color an ocean on a circular piece of white poster paper. Dolphins, seahorses, or starfish can be added for extra fun.
Next, Nemo should be colored and cut out, and a layer of cotton balls should be glued to the back. The entire ensemble should then be glued to the ocean scene.
Clear plastic should be wrapped around the entire craft, and tied at the top with a ribbon, giving the appearance of a real water balloon with Nemo inside!
3. Add Pizzazz to an Aquarium
What could be better than Nemo to decorate a goldfish bowl or aquarium? If your child has either, have him, or her cut out several characters from Finding Nemo.
Help the youngster come up with a pattern for the decals, and use krazy glue to attach them to the goldfish bowl or aquarium.
Once the glue is dry, use one coat of acrylic spray to keep them looking nice for years!
4. Nemo Paper Plate Art
For this easy craft, give each youngster an ordinary paper plate, and have them color the inner circumference in their favorite shade of blue.
Next, use gold glitter to create a sandy bottom on the lower end of the plate as the “ocean bed.”
Green puffy paint can then be used to create some plant life, and tiny shells can be added to the “sand.”
When Nemo is colored and cut out, he can be pasted to the middle, and white craft beads can be added as “bubbles” to make him look real.
5. Easy Nemo Puppets
If you’re looking for something easy, either for a classroom activity or an individual craft, making simple Nemo puppets is ideal.
Once Nemo (or any above character) is colored and cut out, it should be glued to an orange piece of poster board, which has been cut out in the same shape.
Add large wiggle eyes to Nemo (or your chosen character), and attach a large craft stick to the back. When the child moves it, the wiggle eyes will jump up and down, making a hilarious puppet.
6. Make a Nemo Visor
This craft is surprisingly simple and pleases all youngsters! Cut an ordinary paper plate into the shape of a visor, using about two-thirds of the plate.
Cut Nemo from the finished coloring page and glue him to the plate.
Next, staple a piece of elastic to either side of the pointed ends of the cutout, measuring it in advance to ensure it fits.
When the child puts it on, it will work just like a visor, and if laminated with acrylic spray, it will last a long time.
7. Adorable Nemo Wall Art
Begin with a simple piece of blue poster board about the size of a piece of construction paper.
Shredded tissue paper in green and blue should then be glued to the bottom half of the paper.
Next, the youngster can use gold puffy paint to draw seahorses and starfish, and glitter can be added to make the water “sparkle.”
Once Nemo is cut out, construction paper fins and wiggle eyes can be added, and he can take his place in the middle of this great poster!
8. Nemo in 3D
To create this cute Nemo 3D theater, start with an ordinary, small cardboard box, and cut off the flaps. Line it with dark blue construction paper and turn it on its side.
Trace and cut out “ocean waves” from light blue construction paper, leaving a bit of extra paper so they can be glued to the bottom frame of the box.
Once Nemo is colored and cut out, a pipe cleaner can be threatened through the back wall of the box and krazy glued to Nemo, making it look as if he is swimming!
9. Turn a Pumpkin Into a Grinning Nemo
This super fun craft requires only the coloring page, some krazy glue, and a small pumpkin.
Once Nemo is colored, he should be carefully cut out and sealed in glassine. Next, the cutout should be attached to the surface of a small pumpkin with krazy glue.
One or two coats of acrylic spray should be added, and Nemo should be decorated with puffy paint, felt, wiggle eyes, and a big smile.
Orange and black ribbon tied around the top makes this craft extra fancy.
10. Design a Nemo Soapdish
All children enjoy this unique craft. Begin with a simple soap dish in white or black.
When Nemo is colored, he should be carefully cut out and glued to the bottom center of the soap dish with invisible craft glue.
Three coats of acrylic spray should be added to seal the cutout, and your child will have a decorative and functional soap dish!
