For our last week of this year’s Virtual Book Club for Kids, we have a fun summery theme that our ideas could keep you going for a while. We’re focusing on fish and one of our favourite fish books The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. Below you will find some fun ideas and activities for the week that are simple and easy to set up to do at home with your preschooler plus, other recommended fish books as well as more activities we have collated on our Fish Themed Board on Pinterest. So here you go a week of playing, creating, learning and having fun on the theme of fish for you and your preschoolers to enjoy.

Virtual Book Club for Kids Feature Books The Rainbow Fish

We have provided links to the books we recommend in this week’s theme. If you purchase via the links we may earn a small commission.

Our featured book for the theme of fish is The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. This is a lovely illustrated book that tells the tale of the beautiful Rainbow Fish. At the beginning of the story he’s not that friendly but is very proud of his shiny scales.

Fish Themed Activities for Preschoolers Inspired by The Rainbow Fish

Each week here on the Virtual Book Club for Kids we hand-pick 5 simple and easy to do activities with your preschooler. These cover a range of skills and ideas from simple sensory play to an art or craft that you both will enjoy.

Although we suggest 5 it is up to you how many you want to do. Below you will find an example schedule from one of our team that carries out the activities at home with her preschooler 1 per day during the week.

Sensory Activity for a Fish Theme with Preschoolers

Our sensory activity this week may take a little more time to set up than our previous week’s ones but we thought it would be an ideal one to have set up for the summer and let your children play with throughout.

So here we go a Sensory Fish Tank for Preschoolers.

Fish Themed Alphabet Activity for Preschoolers

Get a little crafty with your preschoolers with this Alphabet Fish Activity.

We love how it matches the book as well with the shiny scales.

This week’s recipe is an easy snack that you and your preschoolers can make together. Fruity Fish Pizzas!

Art & Craft for Fish Week with Preschoolers

Our Art and Craft activity for Fish week is so much fun especially if the weather is warming up where you are.

So get out your water pistols and get creative making these Squirt Fish Paintings with your preschoolers.

More Fish Themed Books for Preschoolers

Although we suggest a featured book each week on The Virtual Book Club for Kids we know from our members that some find it difficult to locate and others love to have a few other books in their collection on the weekly theme so we suggest 3 other books that we recommend as parents and teachers.
