Mason jar lids
On each lid, write one letter of the alphabet - one for each letter. I did capitals on one side and lower case on the other. I also did a separate set of numbers. Make the fishing pole by tying the string onto the dowel and the magnet on the other end. Now you are ready to fish!
For smaller kids, you can name a letter or number and have them fish for it. Or mix the letters/numbers up and have your fisherman put them in order.
My older kids love this as well. To make it more age appropriate, I have them spell out words on their spelling lists from school, or call out a number and they have to fish for the numbers that add up to that sum.
This is such a great simple activity for any age...Thanks Grandma!!
