Today is Leap Day! And do you know what that means? We get an extra day this year, that we won't get for another four years! We are taking this day to celebrate one of our favorite authors. Did you know that Dr. Seuss's birthday is on March 2nd? We are going to be celebrating all week! Today is all about the classic One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. There is something we just love about the colors and it turned into some really fun activities.
What You'll Need
- Construction Paper
- Gold Fish Snacks
- Scissors and Glue
Activity #1- Handprint Fish
For our first activity, we are making handprint fish. We just traced her hand and stacked four colors of paper together and cut them all out at once. Make sure to include red and blue. Then we just glued them to a light blue paper (water) and made it our own with faces and bubbles. Then Lydi went to town coloring. It was fun to see how excited she got helping me with it all.
Activity #2- Paper Strip Fish
This was by far the easiest activity we did. We just took the extra paper from the hand prints and cut them into strips. Then you just cut a slit in on side and bend them to become a fish. Lydi had a blast playing with them!
Activity #3- Counting Fish Snack
Right now we are working on 'one two threes', and this was the perfect activity for snack time. I just drew lines of fish with different amounts and then matched them with goldfish for a quick snack. Even if your little one is too young to really understand counting quite yet (I'm pretty sure Lydia has no idea) this is still a fun snack for them.
Activity #4- Coloring Page
I found this awesome website with printable's for any age. We chose this fun fish that she could color any color she wanted. Her's turned out multi-colored. The link to the site is below the picture.
