Finger Print Fish – Swimmy

Finger Print Fish - Swimmy

For Virtual Book Club this month we read Swimmy by Leo Lionni. This is a favorite book at our house. They girls did not want any of the other books for this activity. We read through several new books but came right back to Swimmy!


What you need: paper with fish drawn on it, lids, and paint red & black.

Each of the girls got to put their on finger print for the eye.

They did the rest of the fish using just their finger to make the marks. It was fun and a learning experience taking turns and working as a team just as was brought out in the book.
