|Sharpies and Ziploc Baggie|
You will need:
- Ziploc Baggies
- Sharpie Markers
- Blue Hair Gel
- Blue Shampoo
|Fill the aquarium with foam fish or make a dino terrarium.|
Color an under water scene on the bag. As an alternative, you can cut out fishy shapes and insert them to slosh around in the goo. Fill bag with about 1/4 C. of gel for a sparkly, ocean effect. For bubbles add a small squirt of shampoo. (Little ones loved squishing and watching the bubbles appear.) Tightly zip bag and tape to window or mirror. Squish away your stress!
|Gel is sparkly, add a little blue shampoo for bubbles.|
|Creative Play Element: Pretend a Hoola-hoop is a fish pond.|
Rainbow Fish to the Rescue is a perfect story compliment.
Then using a sparkly piece of foam,I cut out a scale and taped
it to "its" shirt for Tag.
It took the little one a few minutes to catch on to the game of
tag. (Some didn't want anything to do with the scale.) But it is
so much fun watching as they learn the game and start running
after each other.
Tip: Miss Lora preferred the gel to the shampoo. It is thicker
and looks more like real ocean water but the little ones loved
Moral: It's not about making the perfect craft, it is
all about the process and the fun of experimenting!
We like to add a creative play element.
