Dr. Seuss One Fish, Two Fish Snack


The first week of March our preschoolers celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday (March 2). We send a note home asking the children to bring in their favorite Dr. Seuss books and we have fun with activities related to those books. Every single year we get multiple copies of One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. I decided to include a Dr. Seuss One Fish, Two Fish Snack for the preschoolers to assemble.

While surfing the internet, I found a snack idea from Bright Hub Education that I knew would be perfect for this activity.

I love incorporating math into our activities, just like when we made our thankful turkeys and our ladybugs. I created a sheet for each child to help them count and assemble their snacks. You could easily do this with just pen and paper.

 I placed the goldfish crackers in a bowl and added tongs for some fine motor fun.

 We counted out 6 goldfish, placing them on the illustration.

 We extended fine motor by having them spread blue-tinted cream cheese (blue food coloring mixed into the cream cheese) onto the rice cake. The 6 goldfish crackers were then placed on top of the “water”. We ate them during our snack time.
