This week we will make fish prints at the art table.  We will encourage all the children to make a fish print.  The children will have a chance to choose the colors they would like to paint their fish and see how these colors blend when made into a print. We will have a fishing pool set out in the blocks area with a ‘dock’ to stand on to catch fish.  

A fun activity at home is to “catch” goldfish crackers with humus “bait” on the end of a long, fat pretzel “fishing pole”.  You can use anything long (a pretzel, celery or carrot) to be your pole and any thick bait (humus, cream cheese or a nut butter) to catch your ‘fish’ (goldfish crackers, cut in half olives, cheerios).  It is a fun way to eat a snack.


There are so many fish in the deep blue sea. What color fish do you see?

Look and see, look and see.
