Alphabet Fishing: Handmade Learning Material for Kids

Last year, Sam's teacher asked us mommies if we could bring a small pole with a magnet dangling on a string attached to it. I didn't quite get that at first and so I had to see a sample. Only when I saw what it was for that I understood that what she was asking for was sort of a handmade fishing pole for alphabet fishing.

Alphabet fishing, what a good idea! 

All you have to do is make a 'fish' out of a cardboard. You can be as creative as you want. Attach a paper clip. Attach a letter of the alphabet using a double sided tape.

You have to have a small piece of magnet tied to a string. And then the string needs to be tied to the pole of course.

This is how it will look like. The more colorful the better.

I put all of the fishes inside our old baby tub.

This handmade learning tool is great for kids who are beginning to learn colors, numbers and letters. You can actually use this for alphabet fishing, number fishing or just plain 'color' fishing. It's a fund and easy game for toddlers and pre-schoolers.

  1. That's very creative. My SIL loves doing this kind of things with magnets in it.
