Paper Clips (10)
Make a simple fishing pole by tying a short length of string to one end of a wooden spoon. Tie a strong magnet to the end of the string.
Cut ten fish shapes out of construction paper.
Attach a paper clip to the front of each fish shape.
To play the game, place the fish shapes on the floor.
Let your children take turns catching fish for one minute.
Have each child count how many fish she caught, then put the fish back on the floor for the next person.
Variation: Number the fish shapes from 1 to 10. As the children catch each fish, have them say the numeral written on it.
