DIY Felt Fish

These fish are made quickly - see here how (link), and can be reused for a number of indoors activities to release some of the excess energy children have when confined indoors during bad weather. We usually put a large shallow box (= a fish pond) on the floor, several meters away from the child. You may expect a lot of jumping and cheering if a whole group is playing. Join the kids, it will be fun!
