DIY Fish Game

This was a really cool idea that I executed. I wasn’t sure if anyone in the blogging world had made this, but I jumped in head first.

For this project I used:

  • Construction paper
  • Refrigerator magnets
  • String
  • Glue (Elmer’s)
  • Scissors
  • A blue barrel/bowl or container for my fish pond
  • And glow wands that lost their glow

Here’s how I made my game:

  1. I made a fish shape on my construction paper
  2. Cut out my template
  3. Then cut out more fishes of different colors
  4. Once I had them cut, I used cheap Dollar tree chip clip magnets and cut them into smaller squares (and two thin rectangles)
  5. I put a dot of glue at each mouth and pressed in my magnet
  6. I did this for all my fish
  7. Then I cut out some fishing “lures” or hooks
  8. I cut equal sizes of string (about two feet)
  9. I put a line of glue down the longer part of the hook
  10. I place the string into the line of glue
  11. I went over the string with a little more glue
  12. Then I glued down a longer strip of magnet (those slim rectangles!)
  13. I held the hook, string, and magnet for a few seconds. This way I could also wipe away any extra glue
  14. I let them all dry over night
  15. I tied the other end of the strings to the glow wands
  16. Threw my dropped fishies into the barrel
  17. And played!

Elli loved it. I had fun making it. She even helped me a little bit. Get your kids involved by making their own fish or other Sea creatures! Let me know in the comments if you’ve tried it! Or if you have questions… I’m posting from my phone so sometimes autocorrect throws in her own words lol
