School program ideas

My son got chosen for a speaking part in his 1st grade program next week and we have to make a costume for him. The part is a clown fish, but it's not the actual fish like in finding nemo. It like a fish and a clown mixed together. I could really use some creative ideas. Thanks in advance.

  • What about a regular clown costume but instead of a wig make a big fin on the top, and fins for arms too??

  • How about using the bottom part of a merman costume, then from the waist up dress him like a clown?

  • I would go the day after Halloween and get clown stuff and add fins to him. Maybe put him in arm floaties or a tubie too so he could be a silly fish, since all fish know how to swim.

  • Thanks for the ideas ladies you have really given me some things to work with. I have never been very artsy so this is a tough one for me, but it's a very big deal to him so I want to do a good job.
