After a little holiday at the beach last week, where we caught a lot of fish, the boys were itching to go fishing again.
Stuck in the house, I had to resort to some crafty, fishing fun.
I had on hand some cardboard fish cutouts. I let the boys go wild with these, some glue and a whole heap of paper confetti.
Once they were sufficiently decorated and dried we went about making our artwork into a fishing game.
I attached a large paper clip to the mouth of each of the fish. I then fashioned a fishing line out of some string and a large magnetic clip. I chose this magnetic clip over any other magnet because it was large and heavy, making it easier for the kids to wield and ‘fish’ with successfully. This was also the safer option of all the magnets I had around the house – I didn’t want to use one that was small enough to be swallowed by the kids or our dog.
The kids love playing this game. It kept them entertained for ages!
