This fun and easy to make fishing game provided us with a lot of fun today. This activity is great for hand/eye coordination.
Materials needed: paper plate, foil, paper clips, dolly pegs or any type of stick (or even an old marker), blue card paper (i used poster board paper), string, and small magnet.
First print out the fish images on card stock (or normal paper and laminate). Print two copies so that there are more fish. I’ve included a fish printable here
I used a dolly peg as the fishing stick and tied a piece of string around it as well as around a small magnet.
(For younger kids make the string shorter than for an older child since it is easier to control with a shorter string.)
You can use a stick from outside(twig), old marker, or even an old magnetic fishing game stick that you have lying around instead.
