Did you know that dolphins have brains similar to humans and are as intelligent as apes? They also have two stomachs and, like some whales, they don’t chew their food! Dolphins are more like us than you might think.

Last year, we read Dolphin Adventure by Wayne Grover aloud. I had no idea dolphins had such tight family units before I read the book which is based on a true story. You should definitely check it out and explore dolphins with your little ones. Children learn best through play.

Dolphin Theme Activities:

Looking for fun ways to incorporate your new dolphin craft friend in your learning activities?

1. Move like a dolphin!

One way to learn more about dolphins is by exploring the way they move. You could “swim like dolphins” in the bathtub. My kids love to play in the tub any time of day! 

Or you could dance like a dolphin with Pinkfong’s Dolphin Song. Have a dolphin family dance party! Plus, it’s a fun way to encourage your child to participate in healthy physical activity. 

2. Family Yoga Fun:

Another great way to get kids moving is through yoga. Yoga is also a great way to teach children relaxation and concentration skills. There is a fun “dolphin pose” your kids are sure to love.

It’s almost exactly the same as the downward facing dog pose, but in dolphin pose you rest on your forearms. It’s a great pose for kids that might be anxious or restless because it reduces stress and fatigue.

3. Try a dolphin finger play:

Finger plays are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. Through finger plays, children can increase their vocabulary and develop better listening skills. Finger plays are also a great way to build language for young children and children with speech delays.

Sing and act out the Dolphin Finger Family with KidsTV to build language development and listening skills with your young learners. Use your newly crafted dolphins to act out the song for added fun!

4. Finger painting:

My daughter is always begging to paint. I’m not a fan of messy activities, so I prefer easy printables coupled with crayons or markers. Sometimes, just for fun, we take out the finger paints.

This printable dolphin craft works well as a stencil or template for finger painting fun. Just print, cut out, trace the outline, and have fun painting. You can encourage your child to explore shades of gray to create a realistic dolphin, or let them use their imagination for extra fun!

After you have printed the dolphin template on gray and white paper, you’ll cut out each shape.

Then, simply glue them all together. How easy is this? 

Another option you can choose is to print the dolphin template on white paper and color him first, then glue him together. The choice is all yours. 

Why not bring him to life by also adding a small white sliver of paper to his tail and body? It makes him really pop doesn’t it?
