Project #36 Fun Fishing Game


Magnetic Goldfish Game by Khali from Little. Lovely.

This fun fishing game will help younger children with their fine motor development.

What you’ll need:
*Orange craft paper
*Orange marker pen
*Black felt tip pen
*2 Lengths of twine
*2 Unsharpened pencils
*4 Cupcake papers
*5 Metal paper clips
*2 Small magnets (round with a hole in the middle work best)


step one:
…Draw an outline of a goldfish and a mirror image of the same fish on craft paper. Repeat for the number of fish required. (We made five.)
step two:
…Decorate your fish (we gave ours scales) and cut them out using small scissors.
step three:
…Attach a paperclip to the back of one fish with cellotape, leaving a small section of paperclip sticking out the end of the fish. Apply glue, align the fish’s mirror image and stick together. Repeat for remaining fish.
step four:
…Make lily pads by flattening a green cupcake paper and cutting out a small section as shown. Apply glue to the round centre of the green cupcake paper and stick red cupcake paper to centre.
step five:
…Make your fishing pole by tying a piece of twine to the end of an unsharpened pencil. Attach magnet to the other end of the twine. Repeat for your second pole. Now, go fish!

How to play:
*Take turns to try and catch the fish by placing your fishing pole’s magnet on the paperclip sticking from the fish’s mouth.
*Spin your pencil between two fingers to reel in your fish.
*Place any caught fish in your lily pad.
*After all the fish have been caught, count your fish. The person with the most fish wins!

Note: Increase the difficulty of the game for older children by making different coloured fish and poles in corresponding colours.
