1. Fill your fish bowl with water. Add a few drops of blue food coloring and stir well. Add more if you wish for your water to be darker.
2. Set the fish bowl on the floor. You may wish to put it on a table cloth or towel since there will be splashing and water may get spilled.
3. Move about fuve feet away from the bowl. You can place an X on the ground to mark the spot you want children to stand on.
4. Give each player a handful of gummy fish. They should stand on the X and take turns tossing the fish into the bowl. Listen to the kids cheer and laugh as fish go flying and water goes splashing!
The winner is the person who gets the most fish in the bowl. Let kids get closer if it is proving difficult for them, or further if it is proving too easy. Either way, this is a fun, Seuss themed hands on game they are sure to enjoy!
