Outdoor Activities: Gone Fishing

You are here

You Will Need
  • 1 long piece of string
  • 1 magnet
  • 1 wooden spoon or stick
  • Paperclips
  • Printouts
  • Scissors
  • Crayons, markers or paints
How to play
  1. Cut out the underwater treasures from the printout and color them in
  2. Attach a paperclip to each of your treasures
  3. Place your treasure on the ground
  4. Tie one end of the string to your magnet
  5. Tie the other end to the wooden spoon, or stick. You now have a fishing rod!
  6. Use your fishing rod to try and catch the treasure 

* To make it more challenging you can put a barrier between you and the fish so you can't see where they are. Or try to only catch the fish, and not the anvils and boots.* You can also challenge your friends! Take turns and see who can catch the most fish in the shortest amount of time. Or make two fishing rods and go head-to-head and go fishing at the same time.
