Dr. Seuss Kids' Felt Board Color and Number Art

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish! The Dr. Seuss classic is perfect for teaching your child about numbers and colors.

(This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosure statement for more information).

This kids’ art activity isn’t just a cute craft. It also helps your child build her fine motor skills, practice number recognition and learn color words. As a bonus, you can pack it up when your child’s all done playing (or starts to lose attention) and wait until another day to play.

Start by reading One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss. Focus on color and number words. You can continue with the vocabulary development after reading the book (but, before starting the activity) by playing an easy I-spy game. Look for objects that are one solid color. Say, “I spy something blue” and point to the object (for example, your blue couch). Your child has to look for something blue and point to it.

And now for the art-making …

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        Red, blue and two other colors of craft felt sheets

·        Scissors

·        A marker

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Draw a fish onto the blue felt. If your child is struggling to draw a ‘fish’, break it down into shapes. For example, an oval with a triangle at the end makes a fish.

2.     Repeat the drawing, and make two more using red felt.

3.     Cut the fish out.

4.     Cut a thin strip of felt in another color to make a one. Repeat this, making a two (you can add more fish and more numbers as your child builds her math skills).

5.     Press the fish and numbers onto a plain sheet of felt. Your child must match the correct numbers of fish with the numerals.

    The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong

    I believe forgiveness is the best form of love in any relationship. It takes a strong person to say they’re sorry and an even stronger person to forgive.

    Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
