Pin the scale on the fish game
Plastic tablecloth with a fish shape cut out of it; roll of quarters; 4 heavy rocks; swimming pool or small plastic pool
Before playing this game, cut a fish shape out of a plastic tablecloth. Take the tablecloth with the fish cut out from the middle of it, and place it in the shallow end of the pool, holding it in position by placing a large rock on each corner. Have the children stand around the edge of the pool and drop quarters into the water. They are trying to make the quarter land on the fish to look like a fish scale. This pool game is fun for children, even if they are not strong swimmers. You can even try it in a small plastic pool for very younger children.
