Fishes Fishes Everywhere!!!
Today was a cold and rainy day...what to do... Well we recently watched the movie Finding Nemo and last night my Dad bought my son a very cute book about fish...so I decided this would be a fishy kinda day.
First we read our new book! It's called Hooray for Fish! and it came with an adorable DVD that is a short animated version of the book. It was so cute...my son and I read the book a few times then watched the short story with the book in our laps. It also came with a page of stickers or fish from the book.
This book is great for learning many different concepts
Feelings! This one's my favorite with toddlers.
My son says "HAPPY" with a smile and "sad" with a deep voice and a sad face...too cute.
After our story and the short animated version we got started on making our fish.
I let my son use dot markers to decorate his fish.
we glued a button on as an eye and my son ran around with his new fishy.
Next we made a play aquarium.
I took a large tupper-ware and filled it with warm water and put in my sons play fish...I put down are catch-all mat for easy clean up.
Water play is not only for outside! It is a fun and stimulating activity that helps develop observation and gross motor and hand-eye coordination skills.
just like in the book.
Later in the day we read The Rainbow Fish...we have the 'bath book' version so it is a much shorter version of the original story.
You could have your child paint the bowl first then glue on the foil for the 'Rainbow Fish' scales.
We had a fun fishy day and I hope you enjoy these ideas.
