Maybe it seems complicated at first, but I assure you, they are really easy to make and kids will love them.
Step one - a fishing rod
Every fisherman knows that there is no catch without a good fishing rod. To create a rod you'll need: metal hooks (from clothes hangers), a piece of string and a stick. Just tie it all together and you have a simple fishing rod:
Step two - making fish
For cardboard fish, you'll need the following: some cardboard and some wool / thicker thread or a ribbon and crayons for decorating them as well as a holepunch.
Cut two pieces of cardboard in the shape of a fish and decorate them as you like.
Make holes with a holepunch, through which you'll pull string and in that way, connect the two parts. While binding, ensure that the loops are not tight, so that children can catch fish (see the tail of a fish on the photo bellow).
This one turned out the best:
For rag fish you'll need: old socks or mittens, buttons for eyes, a bit of string and some fabric scraps for filling.
Take the sock (or a mitten, like us). Sew two buttons that will be the fish's eyes:
Fill it with fabric scraps and tie it with a piece of string / ribbon:
And it's also important to make loops, so that children can "catch" the fish.
It didn't take much for fellow fish to gather:
