Your little kids will for sure love this quick & easy Icy Fish Pets Preschool Monthly Theme Activity. It’s so great for hot summer days and would of course be a wonderful addition to your next pets or fish theme! You’re definitely going to want to check it out!
We’re just about finished with our Family & Pets theme and today’s Icy Fish Pets Preschool Monthly Theme Activity was seriously all kinds of awesome. Both the little guy and baby girl loved this one!
I wasn’t entirely sure how this would go over with my toddler, but she’s only a few month younger than the little guy was when we started tot school with him and I really do try to include her whenever possible. After all, it definitely makes the whole thing a lot easier.

We’ve never had fish. Suffice it to say that we’re dog people. Large breed working/sporting dogs, to be exact. Right now, we have our beloved Torque who we adopted many years ago. He’s a husky. And of course Zeus, our chocolate lab pup who belongs to the little guy.
Goldfish are a common type of pet fish. They are able to live many years if cared for properly, and prefer to live with at least one other goldfish in their tank. Many people are surprised to discover that goldfish are quite smart and can display unique personalities.
Children love learning about animals. And let’s be realistic, pets are especially fun and relatable because so many little kids have at least one, sometimes more.
Icy Fish Pets Preschool Monthly Theme Activity
- The night before, freeze small items such as sequins or wiggle eyes in an ice cube tray, muffin tin, or any interesting-shaped container. Set out the “icy fish” and a clear container of water for children to explore.
- Where might you find fish?
- Do you think fish like cold or warm water to swim in? Why?
- What do icy fish feel like? What happens when they get wet?
I’m always interested in watching how the little guy and baby girl interact while doing activities such as this one. I love watching E “teach” his little sister. He’s so wonderful with her, taking the time to show her what he’s doing and even help if needed.
It’s crazy to think that my baby really isn’t a baby anymore, but that of course means lots of preschool homeschool fun is headed to a blog near you. Lol…
Look at how engrossed baby girl was. The sparkly sequins and rainbow beads were totally a hit with her! She loved them! I mean, she’s loved all of the ice activities that we’ve done, but this one was definitely a favorite.
Keep in mind that when the ice melts, the sequins and beads could potentially be a choking hazard. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
