We are O-FISH-ally approaching the end of the school year quite quickly and we are wrapping up our Virtual Book Club for Kids with a few final favorite books.
This month for Virtual Book Club for Kids we are featuring the book The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, We created a simple fish themed name activity to go along with the book. It is a great addition to the collection of other simple Rainbow Fish inspired activities that we've shared before.

MATERIALS NEEDED TO MAKE NAME PUZZLES:
- colored cardstock (2 pieces per person)
HOW TO MAKE NAME PUZZLES:
Since we read The Rainbow Fish we decided to make our puzzles shaped liked fish. You can actually make these using any shape you would like to use.
We started off by cutting fish shapes out of cardstock and then the kids decorated them with crayons.
Next we traced the fish onto another piece of colored cardstock to create an outline. We went over the outline using black Sharpie.
After that we wrote each child's name on the fish and then we cut out each letter to make a name puzzle.
We traced the puzzle pieces onto the outline to make a puzzle piece outline.
To finish up the name puzzles we handed each child a baggie with name puzzle pieces and their job was to build their name puzzle on top of their cardstock name outline.
I used tape to secure the paper outline in place so that it didn't blow around and make kids annoyed while they tried to put their puzzles together.
