An aquarium craft is fun to make for your ocean theme. It's a great way to extend your exploration of fish and other ocean creatures.

Start with a discussion about fish and the ocean at circle time. Highlight the discussion with books and videos about fish.

  • How do fish breathe underwater?
  • What do fish eat?
  • How do fish swim?

Then build your own aquarium craft to watch fish move about in the ocean.
