An idea for a game came from some Book Inspiration – “Piranha’s Don’t Eat Bananas“. I began drawing some baby Piranha fish; attached a paper clip to each and tied a magnetic letter to a wooden spoon using a pipe cleaner…the tools I found around the house worked as effectively as any other equipment like fishing line or string.
Give it a Whirl!
Hand–eye co ordination, developing a positive approach to challenges and understanding the turn taking processes are all being fostered in this activity.
All you need:
paper to draw on
some sort of rod – chop stick, coat hanger
pipe cleaner or string – easier to tie around the magnet
All you do:
Print out my baby fish template or draw your own. Slip on a paper clip near the mouth. Tie a magnetic letter or some sort of magnet to your Rod with your pipe cleaner or string and start fishing!
