Have child dip his/her pointer finger back into the paint to add the dorsal (top) fin, flipper, flukes (tail fin), and beak.
If your child would like, have him/ her create "bubbles" by using pointer finger dipped in blue paint.
For another activity, I used the book "If a Dolphin Were a Fish." The book compares Delfina the dolphin to many other types of animals and tells why Delfina is not a fish, turtle, shark, etc. It is an easy to read story with creative graphics to show the uniqueness of each animal's characteristics/ adaptations.
I came up with four other animals that Delfina is not and had Big Brother complete the sentence, "If Delfina were a _________, she would __________." Big Brother filled in the blanks with:
If Delfina were a pig, she would roll in the mud.
If Delfina were a butterfly, she would fly.
If Delfina were a elephant, she would make noises with her trunk.
If Delfina were a tiger, she would roar.
