(Classic Play) Couch Fishing

img_4733Summer or winter, couch fishing is always in season. It is a sure way to reel in a boat full of smiles.

There are many ways in which you can assemble a fishing pole, but one of the easiest ways requires only a wrapping paper tube, a few feet of string, and a clothes pin tied onto the end as a hook. Then be creative when it comes to the “catch of the day”. The kids can fish for prizes, new reading words on pieces of paper, or simple paper fish.

By positioning themselves on the couch, the kids can pretend that they are riding on a boat and drop their line over the back and into the imaginary water. All you have to do is help hook the “fish”.

*Tip – The “fish” provide a great opportunity to work in some educational concepts such as phonics, vocabulary words, or math problems!
