Beanbag Fish

Miraculous Catch of Fish
Luke 5

I made a bunch of these beanbag fish to use with many fish stories.  I like to use these the most with the story of Jesus and the Miraculous Catch of Fish.  I like to use a real net and have the children fish on one side of a pretend boat.   After quite a while of not catching anything, I have a child pretending to be Jesus tell them to cast the net on the other side. When they cast their net on the other side, we fill the net with these fabric fish.  They are HEAVY!  It gives them the feeling that the nets are about to break like it says in the Bible story.  When these fish are filled with rice, they feel floppy and feel more like real fish.
