This is one of those playtimes completely inspired by Vinnie's pretend play. He had been playing with the waterbeads and was using a pipecleaner to pretend fish with. I left him to it, not wanting to interrupt his play, but put together a little magnetic fishing activity for next time.
I put the paper into plastic sleeves before cutting out the fish shapes to protect the paper a little, then added a paperclip to each one and a popsicle stick with a magnet number for a fishing rod.
The kids had more fun than I was even expecting with this - I'm always surprised at the joy they get from such simple things, but I love it too!
