This 1 fish 2 fish red fish blue fish craft was one of my favorite activities to make with my students when I taught kindergarten. Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2 is National Read Across America Day. Every year on March 2nd I would gather all of my Dr. Seuss books for the kids to read and we would celebrate this amazing author with a ton of Dr. Seuss activities. I would often invite parents into the classroom to help and this craft was one of the stations that they would help me with.
I have made a few red fish blue fish crafts in the past, but I keep coming back to this one because the kids love it. Its a simple craft that is easy to make in a short time. You can make this work for your toddler and preschooler by cutting out the one fish two fish red fish blue fish template yourself. The little ones love to paint the fish and add the finishing touches like the googly eyes.
