I recently made Harper her very own Fishin’ Game!
…and she LOVES it!
I pinned this a while ago, thinking it was linked to a tutorial…
but it was linked to a store!
So in true JIAD style I decided to would make my own version!
I went through Harper’s sock drawer and found a few socks that were
too small or had no match…
Then I got some stuffing and got to work!
Stuff the sock with stuffing.
Work the stuffing with your thumb into the sock.
Once the stuffing is down in the foot part of the sock tie it off with a tiny rubber band.
(see the next picture if you are confused)
Hot glue a little magnet to the bottom of the sock…
…where the toes would go.
Make sure to press firmly and use a good amount of glue!
Next get some felt (I used scraps) and hot glue whatever shapes or designs you want
onto the fish! Remember hot glue LOVES felt!
Cut little circles out of felt and add some eyes…
Then cut a strip of felt long enough to go around the tail of the fish so that it covers up the rubberband and make a bow!
And now you have a super cute little fishy that will attach to any metal surface!
To make a fishing pole,
take a dow rod and cut it to your desired length.
Cut a strip of ribbon long enough to make your “line.”
(remember to add a few extra inches to the final length you want when cutting)
Hot glue one end of the ribbon around one end of the dow rod.
Next, grab a metal “hook” from the peg board in your husband’s tool room and hot glue the ribbon around the straight part of the “hook!”
Finish off with a bow because everything looks better with a bow!
And if you want to,
you can cut a little piece of felt and hot glue it on the ends of the dow rod to make sure there aren’t any sharp edges from cutting your rod!
Make a bunch more fish and have fun with it!
And now you have super cute and fun fishin’ game for your little one to play with!
This would make a wonderful gift for a birthday too!
Good luck catching those fish!
