Summer Reading Fun: One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish

“From there to here, from here to there –-- funny things are everywhere!” Keep kids reading and laughing with this easy fish bowl craft. Perhaps make one fish red, maybe make one blue. You'll have fun no matter what you do!

A child who reads opens a world of learning experiences. Don't close the book on this opportunity simply because school's out for summer. Encourage your kids to keep reading. Then, help them make crafts based on those books. Oh, the places your kids will go!
