{Virtual Book Club for Kids} Dr. Seuss’ One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish Activity

I am so excited to be a part of the Virtual Book Club for Kids this year. I am joining with 40+  other bloggers in highlighting a new children’s author each month. We will be showcasing one book from that month’s author  and providing an activity, craft, recipe or project to go along with the book. This is such a fun way to discover new books!

This month’s author is none other than Dr. Suess! 

What better way for me to join this great book luck then highlighting one of the most beloved children’s authors.

The book I choose to highlight is one of daughter’s favorites. One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish.

First we read the book together and then my daughter colored this free printable.

She loved coloring the picture that appears in the book.

Then we had a one fish two fish snack inspired by Simple Girl at Home. We made a fish bowl, which turned out so fun. To make this fish bowl,  prepare some blue Jello in a medium bowl. When the jello is set add some Swedish fish. My daughter loved eating and playing in this! It also great for sensory play!

Next we had a fun one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish bath activity

For this activity you’ll need:

  • multicolored foam sheets (I got mine at the dollar store)
  • scissors
  • marker

Directions: All you need to do is cut out your fish shapes from the foam and then I used a permanent marker to draw a face and fin. I cut out 2 for each color. We had yellow, blue, red, and, green.

First we made a pattern- yellow, green, red, and blue.

Then we made another pattern. This was a great way to talk about colors.

She then took them off one by one and counted them as she went. She then put them back on the shower wall counting them as she added them. Granted, her counting goes something like this, “one, two, three, six, nine,”.

She remembered the book because as she kept taking them on and off she would say “one fish, two fish, more fish, more fish”. While those aren’t the exact words, they are pretty close. That is what I love about Dr. Seuss books. The rhyming and repetition is something that even the youngest children pick up on. She really loved this activity. She spent the remaining time in the bath taking the fish off and putting them back on. I think we will definitely be playing with these fish again!
