Preschooler Activity: Pretend Fishing


Materials

  • Stick for fishing pole
  • String
  • Magnet
  • Scissors
  • Construction paper
  • Glue or tape
  • Metal paper clips

Directions

  1. Cut fish shapes out of construction paper.
  2. Glue or tape metal paper clips to the back of each fish.
  3. Make a fishing pole out of a long stick and a length of string.
  4. Tie a magnet on the end of the string.
  5. Go fishing.

This works well if you place the "fish" on the floor and let your child dangle her line over the back of the couch. You can also use this game to help your child learn her basic skills: Draw a shape or write a letter or number on the back of each fish, and have her identify it when caught.
