Darren "hates" fishing which is why I love to do something fish related for Father's Day every year. It always makes him smile when I tease him!
This year his niece, Kailey, happened to make a fun mini-fishing game which I promptly made him play with me (I also cooked him lingcod)! Happy father's day, honey... love you!
- Coloured felt sheets
- Small magnets
- Black marker
- Popsicle sticks
- Paint (optional)
- Small drawstring bag (optional)
- Print out the fish template and cut out the shapes. Trace them onto your felt pieces (you can also draw your own fish shapes if you’d like).
- Cut out your finish shapes, make sure you have 2 of the same shape for each fish you make.
- Take one of your fish shapes and glue the magnet onto the middle of it.
- Put a small amount of glue around the outside of the fish and put the second fish shape on top of it. Make sure the magnet is in between both felt pieces. You can also draw an eye on the fish with a marker. Wait for the glue to dry.
- To make your fishing rod, take 3 popsicle sticks and glue them together. Tie a string around the end, and glue another magnet to the end of the string.
- Set your fish and finishing rod aside and take your drawstring bag (if you have one),
- and decorate it any way you’d like!
- I put a small piece of cardboard on the inside and used tape and paint to decorate the outside
- Once you’ve finished making each part of the game, try it out! You can make more than one fishing rod so you can play with your friends.
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
