We just did a great week of fish stories and felts and songs. It was a lot of fun! We sang, 'Slippery Fish' and Laurie Berkner's, 'Goldfish' and I made a new felt set to use with a rhyme we found from Abby the Librarian's blog. It's called Color Fish. Her coworker made theirs as a prop box. I made my set out of felt. The light blue background is white polar fleece that I dyed with some food coloring and vinegar. The tank is about 16" x 12". I found a cute fish clipart to use as my pattern. You could use the Ellison fish diecut if you have access to it. I wish I did *sigh*. Anyway, I added glitter to my fish and shiny 'bubbles' in the tank and that made me HAPPY! I placed the google eyes in the middle of the fish face so that I could turn them either way.
Fish are a lot of Fun with Friends at Storytime!
