Yesterday my daughter had a play date. I made a craft up for both of them to do together.
print out of a fish
Before you have the kids start the craft you need to set up the fishing poles. You take the dowel rod, tie a string at the top and tape around it so it doesn't slide. Next you put the magnet strip at the bottom of the string.
Have the kids color the fish print out. Depending on their age you can have them cut it out or cut out the fish yourself. Then you put the paper clip in or near the fishes mouth, you may want to put two paper clips on for smaller kids. Now the kids have fun fishing for their fish.
