Sock Fish

I let the children make these fun sock fish when telling stories such as Jesus Feeding the 5,000 (Matthew 14:13-21), Jesus and the Miraculous Catch of Fish (John 21:1-14) and other fish stories. 
  1. Give each child a child-sized sock.
  2. Using a funnel or a paper plate rolled up to be a funnel, let the child pour dried beans or dried rice to fill up most of the sock.
  3. Let the child put a small rubberband around the sock to seal it (see picture above).
  4. Flatten out the fish to look like the picture above.
  5. Let the child draw eyes with a permanent marker.
  6. Show the child how to flatten out the fish to be the fish shape like the picture at the very top.  He can draw fins if he wants. 
  7. Use the fish as you tell the story.
  8. Let the children take them home to use to retell the story.
