It’s been a while since we’ve been able to participate in the Virtual Book Club, but I was super excited for the month of February – Dr. Seuss!
So with Dr. Seuss’s birthday coming up soon (March 2nd) plus Virtual Book Club, I couldn’t wait any longer to dive into all the ideas I have to celebrate this occasion.
For the festivities we read our current favorites, The Foot Book and There’s a Zamp in my Lamp.
We also read several others we’ve been checking out for the first time, including One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
So let’s get started shall we?
I’ll start the Seuss-A-Palooza with a free printable that goes along with One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, our current Dr. Seuss read :)
It’s a simple game to practice counting, numbers, and colors with a fish bowl & some little fishies to swim in the bowl :)
Fine motor skills are also practiced by having their little hands pick up the small game pieces and placing them in the bowl
Here’s what you’ll need:
- fishbowl game board printable (see below to print)
- fish pieces printable (see below to print)
- 1” wooden square block
- a set of dice
- Mod Podge, gloss finish
- foam brush
- 1” circle punch (you could also cut these out individually – but a punch makes it a lot easier ;)
- optional: laminator & 2 lamination sheets (I always laminate all my activity printables for V to withstand the test of toddler time!)
Here’s how to make it:
- Print out your two printable sheets (see below to print); the game board & game pieces
- Before you laminate the fish sheet, using your circle punch, punch out one fish in each color to make the die, set these 6 fish aside
- Laminate both printable sheets
- Using your 1” circle punch, punch out all your little fishies. These 72 laminated pieces are your game pieces (12 of each color because the highest number that can be rolled is twelve)
- Next, attach the 6 non-laminated fish circles to the wooden die
Once the fish die is dry, gather your set of regular dice, game pieces and game board to begin.
Make an advanced game to count up to 24.
Just print out a second fish printable, and follow the instructions to make a second fish die along with 72 more colored fish game pieces.
