This is a great outdoor activity that involves three of my favourite things- water, recycling and STICKS!!
Cut out fish shapes from any plastic container and write the children's names on the fish with a permanent marker. Using a hole punch, make holes for the eyes - the bigger the better!!! Fill up the water trolley with water and let the fun begin!!
The children then made their own fishing rods and tried to catch the fish that had their own name.
The fishing rods were made by winding a pipe cleaner around a stick and bending a little hook on the end.
This was a tricky activity but a fun way for the children to identify their name - even if some children caught the fish with their hands! This could be done with letters of the alphabet, numbers, colours or just as a fine motor activity.
