Fishing game

The crazy fishing game

Make a fishing game with your children from the cheese snack packs

After all, empty cheese snack packs are too good to throw away. You can conjure up all sorts of wonderful things from the fun animals. Let us show you how to make a fun fishing game together with your children, with guaranteed laughs for you too.

All you need are some empty cheese snack packs and a few materials from a craft shop or hardware store. Then you can get to work!

You will need:

  • Cheese snack packs
  • One magnet per pack
  • One small magnet per fishing rod
  • Empty cardboard box (approx. 20 x 20 x 20 cm)
  • Wooden skewers
  • String (approx. 2.5 m = 4 fishing rods)
  • Scissors
  • Glue and super-glue; alternatively: hot glue gun
  • Paintbrush
  • Watercolour

Step by step: Let's do it!

Start

Step 1: The game figures

First glue the opened cheese snack pack back together. The game figures are ready!

Step 2: The magnets for the game figures

Now stick a magnet to each pack. This will be attracted to the rods as you play.

Step 3: The surround for the game figures

You can use an empty cardboard box for the surround. You can paint this exactly as you like, or stick pictures on it. Whether an aquarium, Zoo images or a meadow, let your imagination run wild. When you have finished, you can place all your game figures in it.

Step 4: The fishing rods

Now make the fishing rods! You can use wooden skewers that you can buy from a craft shop or supermarket. To make four fishing rods, cut the string into four pieces of the same length. Then knot a piece of string onto one end of the wooden skewer to create each fishing rod. Use the super-glue or a hot glue gun to stick the small magnet to the end of the string. The fishing rods are done!

Step 5: Finish

It's time to start playing! Take turns with your children to try to catch the cheese snack figures without looking into the surround. When it's your turn, dangle your fishing rod into the surround and try to catch an animal. If you succeed, you get to keep the figure you have caught. The winner is whoever has 'landed' the most cheese snack packs!
