ABC Fish

It’s pretty adorable when you find your kids sitting in the laundry basket pretending they’re fishing.  With our next craft, let’s help them row their boat into a stream of alphabet fish.

Supplies you’ll need:

  • Felt, assorted colors

  • Clothespin, small
  • Magnet
  • Stick or dowel

Steps:

  1. Cut the felt into fish shapes.

  4. Tie a piece of string around one end of the stick.  Thread the other end through the metal spring and tie a knot.  Clip on a magnet and you’re ready to fish!

Here are just a couple of game ideas for these fish.  For younger kids, have them recite the letter after each catch.  Make a few more vowels to turn it into a spelling game for older kids.  We’d love to hear what games you come up with.  Let us know by leaving a comment.  And remember, another great way to help your little ones pick up the ABCs is through our app, Interactive Alphabet. You can download it at the App Store!
