Fancy Fish Activity


Under the sea, under the sea! 🎵🐠🐟🐙🐢🎶
Ocean life is pretty colourful, indeed! Let’s try this finger exercise with your little one. The complex weaving technique is great practice for their small fingers and the patterns are sure to inspire their creativity.

You will need:
1. Paper
2. Pen
3. Pen knife/cutter
4. Ribbons

Draw a fish (or any deep sea creature), leaving room for the weaving pattern on the belly. Next, cut out the fish and draw vertical lines in the belly section. Cut the lines with the pen knife. Later, use the ribbons and weave them through each section with an “over and under” pattern.

The following ribbon should follow an “under and over” pattern. Repeat this until you have completed your colourful, weaved fish!
