Fish in a Boat
Submitted by Nina
Cut the styrofoam containers used to hold hotdogs (like you get at a carnival, or baseball game or fast food place with a hot dog to go) and cut the top and bottom apart. This created two "boats". Next I cut out simple fish from all different colors of construction paper and gave one fish of each color to each child along with a boat. We spread the fish on the floor and sang this chant: "Fishy fishy, in the sea, jump in to my boat for me! Fishy, fishy in the sea, what color fish will you be?" Next I called a color and they had to find that fish and put it in their boat. We had a lot of fun with this and reviewed our colors at the same time!

Fish in the ocean

Have one (or several children) be the shark. The rest of your children must try to cross the ocean (a set space that you specify) and not get eaten (tagged) by the shark. If they get caught then they join the shark to try to catch more fish. Keep playing until everyone is sharks.
