Fishing Fun!

Inspired by Dr.Seuss's One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, the boys and I decided to have {what they called} a "fishing party".  Doesn't everything sound more fun when you add "party" to the end of it???  



Here is what we did:

First, we made some fish.  The boys traced a fish template I made, cut them out, and added a googly eye.


Second, we had a snack while we were waiting for the glue to dry.  We had Goldfish and peanut butter sandwiches cut out with a fish-shaped cookie cutter.  (The eye of the fish is a chocolate chip.)


Third, we made a fishing rod out of a dowel, some ribbon, and a clothespin.  We used gummie worms for bait.


It was easy and fun and kept them entertained for hours.  Give it a try, and let me know how it goes.  :-)
