Under the Sea Creature Magnetic Fishing set!


 I made a magnetic mini fishing kit for Christmas for my kids...
Just with little fish that look like goldfish crackers...and a tiny fishing pole.
But I decided I could do much better and make
 an under sea creature fishing set!
And you might have seen this in the latest issue of
 Kids Craft 1-2-3 Magazine!
Available at most Walmarts!

Get 2 magnets and glue them together with the yarn in the center...
or click the K&J Magnetics button on my sidebar to
buy rare earth magnets with holes in the center...
I used felt for the creatures.
Just drew a little sketch of the animals I wanted
on paper and pinned it on 2 layers of felt...
and cut them out.
Hot glued some magnetic washers onto the fish

Or scrap metal discs...just as long as they are magnetized.
  I used yarn for the jellyfishes stringy things...
what are those called?  Tentacles?

Hot glued the other shape I cut on top and then
decorated with dimensional fabric paint!
Let them dry and paint the other side as well.
That way, when it gets thrown back into the pond it still
 looks good no matter which side it lands on!



These are so fun!  Great carnival game,
birthday parties, kids activity, school or church lessons...



Linking up to THESE parties this week!
