Fishing game for children
- 1 ring magnet, e.g. R-10-07-03-DN
- 1 wooden rod
- 1 piece of string or extra strong twine
- Optional: acrylic paint
Feel free to paint the wooden rod with acrylic paint to make your fishing rod one of a kind. And with that, your fishing game is ready for use! Of course, children can not only cast a line for fish and other small animals, but also for small presents. Simply attach one or two small metal plates to the gift before wrapping it. This will notably increase the excitement when playing the fishing game and add lots of fun to a children’s birthday party.
Game variationsHow you play the fishing game depends on the age of the children. Below, we would like to suggest a few possible game variations as inspiration.
Put the fish and other items in a tall pot or bucket, which you decorated. As an alternative, you could also fashion some type of aquarium out of a tall cardboard box. Each child is allowed to fish once, without being able to see the fish. The winner of the fishing game could be determined, for example, by points or by the number of fish caught (see below).
Each fish or small animal is assigned a point value before the start of the game. You could either paint those directly on the animal or write them down on a piece of paper. Now one child after the other casts the magnetic fishing pole until there are no more fish or small animals left. The child with the most points wins.
Instead of awarding different points during the fishing game, you could simply count the number of fish caught. This game variation is especially well suited for younger children.
For this variation of the fishing game, each player receives their own magnetic fishing pole. The aim here is to catch as many fish as possible within a certain time limit. The degree of difficulty can be increased by fishing “blind” as described above.
In this version, vouchers and promissory notes are prepared for the bride and groom. Write them on pieces of paper, then fold the notes. Add a paper clip to each note. During the wedding reception have each guest draw a note and write their names on the voucher / promissory note.
At the beginning of the game, place the notes on a larger surface, blindfold the bride and hand her a magnetic fishing pole. The aim of the game for the bride is to catch as many notes as possible within a predetermined time period. The groom will guide her with his voice. Next, it is the groom’s turn to go fishing. At the end of the game, the caught vouchers and promissory notes are read to the wedding guests.
