Let’s create with children – fishing for fish

Have your thoughts ever taken you to the seaside?

I am very excited and I must admit I can’t wait for my little family to go on a well-deserved holiday.

This post is about the sea. . . see how we made fish and other animals you find in the sea.

You and your children can make a game together, which we called Let’s go fishing.

A super fun game that kids can play both outdoors and indoors,

if we get caught in bad weather during the holidays.

An idea to create during the holidays. Even if you don’t have a sewing machine, children can sew by hand. as a way to practice manual dexterity and also a good exercise for concentration. 🙂

To make the fish, you need:

-non-stretch fabric, if you don’t have any leftovers at home you can use old kitchen cloths

or old jeans that have been sitting in your closet for a long time and you no longer need them

– staple


-a needle and thicker thread ( wool can also be used)

-a stick that the child can find on a walk

-the interlining (if you don’t have any) to be placed between the goods

Cut out any size fish and other sea animals ( e. g. octopus, starfish. . . )

Cut out the fish-shaped fabric twice, if you have a liner insert it between the fabrics.

Put all the pieces together. Insert a loop (for the children to catch the fish) as shown in the picture.

The children then sew the fish on. We even managed to sew one by hand. Others went through the sewing machine. When I offered her the sewing needle, she immediately ask me

where is sewing machine. 🙂

So the marine animals are ready for children to catch. You will also need a fishing rod.

The buckle is stretched and tied to the string attached to the rod.

The fishermen are ready and waiting to catch their fish 😉

Place the fish on the floor and the children catch them with a fishing rod.

The first fish was caught 😉

If you don’t have a fishing rod, you can catch them by hand. 😉
