We used a bicycle box to make an aquarium for a fishing game. Fishing rods with magnets and fish made out of cardboard made this a lot of fun.
Step 1: Cutting and Painting
Here is my daughter and I cutting and painting the cardboard aquarium.
Step 2: Play Time
Here are the children playing my fishing game. They made all the fish with magnets for eyes. I added some sharks with larger magnets that made them lose their fish that they had caught. We added some characters on strings to complicate game play further. Playful chaos ensured.
Step 3: Snacks
Afterwards we made themed snacks.
