Now that summer is here, we’re all about summer STEM activities filled with water, the ocean, and fish. But, we also want to keep summer learning going throughout the season, even though we are not officially “doing” school.
If you want to sneak in some educational fun for your kids this summer, try these fun aquarium printables with an I Spy theme!
The printable that works as a fun supplement for ocean science experiments is aimed at grades Pre-K-1, but even older kids will have fun finding the fish.

How to Use Your Aquarium Printables
Print a copy for each kid and have fun searching! It takes longer than you might think to find all of the hidden objects.
My girls had a lot of fun with this counting and coloring worksheet!
My girls colored their worksheets with crayons, but you can also use pencils, markers, do-a-dot markers, or anything else you have on hand at the time.
The options are limitless! We used this worksheet to work on counting with Bo, but Monkey just used it as something to do when she was bored.
If you laminate the I-spy worksheet, you can reuse it over and over again!
This is our favorite laminator for using at home or in the classroom.
