Valentine Fishing

Most preschoolers love a fishing game - so here is an idea for an special Valentine variation which you can make yourself.

Valentine Fishing

Age: young

You will need:

Several large heart-shaped fish cut out of card or craft foam. Spend some time decorating them with your children, if you wish, to make the game extra special, and stick a small craft magnet on the tips of their noses.

You will also need some toy fishing poles with magnets on the end.

Instructions:

Scatter your fish into an empty plastic tub or just on a rug on the floor. Give the kids a fishing rod and let them try to catch a fish. For each fish caught, award a small prize such as a Hershey's kiss or other small Valentine candy.

Variations:

Write a number onto the underneath of each fish. The child who catches the highest number wins.

Write a letter onto the underneath of each fish. The child whose fish has the letter closest to the beginning of the alphabet wins.

Draw a heart on the underneath of one or two fishes. Only these special fish win a prize.
