One Fish, Two fish, Dr. Seuss Craft!



Here is another fun Dr. Seuss Book & Craft idea!
LB(4) and LL(2) were like fish in water and so enjoyed creating this simple and easy craft.
Check it out!

Supplies:
  • The book "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," by Dr. Seuss
  • Craft foam in white, green, red & blue
  • Blue paint (finger paint / poster paint / tempera paint)
  • 2 pieces of white paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pen

Book & Craft!

1. Read the book "One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish," by Dr. Seuss.


2. Put the book away and squirt some blue paint onto a plate.
3. Give your child a paint brush and let them paint a piece of white paper however they want. This will be the water. :)


4. Let it dry (overnight is good). 
5. Using the craft foam, cut out fish shapes to match the cover of the book: 1 white fish, 2 green fish, 1 red fish, 1 blue fish.



6. When the paint is all dry, cut the top of the paper to look like waves.
7. Glue the water painting onto another sheet of white paper.
8. Let your child glue the fish onto the water painting. And if they want they can draw faces on the fish. :)


 All done! Hooray!



Do you like this idea? Pin it and save it for later!


*P.S. The best finger paints around are by Crayola. They are the perfect consistency. Not too runny and not too thick. And best of all they are completely washable--and so easy to wipe off tables, fingers, and wash out of clothes. I HIGHLY recommend them for painting crafts with kids. 
And there is a great deal on Amazon right now to get a nice set of 12 different colors. In big bottles that you can use for a LONG time! Check it out!

Crafts & Activities for BOYS!

It can sometimes be tricky to find crafts and learning activities that will capture a little boy's attention span. Believe me, I know! I have 3 little boys and so many of our crafts and activities are along themes of things that little boys often love! Cars, Trucks, Planes, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Legos, Sports, Animals, Space, etc. So here is our collection of tried and true crafts and activities for boys! 
(P.S. And don't worry, I also have 2 little girls, and can verify that each of these are also 100% girl approved too!)

Build a Dinosaur!

Our recent theme for Preschool@Home was DINOSAURS! This is a great (and super easy) activity for helping kids learn and recognize shapes. Using craft foam means it can be used over and over again! And the possibilities are endless.
Or use some glue on the shapes and it could also become a one-of-a-kind dinosaur craft! No matter how you use it, this simple dinosaur activity will most likely produce some very unique prehistoric creatures!
