Growing Out On A Limb

Simple Fishing Game

1 Comment

For a while now, I have had a simple fishing game bookmarked in my favorites as a crafty project to make for Oliver.  I’ve seen them all over crafty blogland, where the “hook” is a magnet and the fish are made of cute fabric scraps and have magnets somehow attached or sewn inside.  I have always thought Oliver would get a kick out of it but it is a bit too time-consuming for this mommy of two.  For now, at least. 

So when I saw this even simpler fishing game, I jumped in and made it in ten minutes (maybe less).  It probably took me more time to get the supplies together than it did to assemble them.  Just twist a few pipe cleaners into fish shapes, glue a magnet to the end of a string, and tie the string to the end of a stick.  Simple, right? 


Oliver played with it for a good 20 or 25 minutes before getting tired of it.  It’s a great way to practice counting and, if you make the fish in different colors, you can also practice colors so I think this is something I’ll be able to bring out on rainy afternoons for quite a while! 

Papa, we’re practicing for the summer!
