Thanks, everyone!!!

Sinamint, I love the idea of biggest, smallest, etc...catch of the day.  Definitely something to add to the list if she loves "fishing".

Ok, now I have one more thing to add to my "to make list" I love this and I am sure my Piper Aria would too.

Turned out gorgeous!

thanks kjbullock!  I can't wait to see what Aria thinks.  This is probably my favorite thing I've made for her.  Smiley

This is so great!
Me and my sisters used to play this kind of a game with paper/ paperclips/ magnets too off of the balcony at my grandparents place. I will certainly be making a set for my neice and nephew!

Absolutely adorable!  What a fun game for all ages!  (I know my 10 yr old would stick his nose up at it, if it were just for him, but if I make it for the 5 yr old, the 10 yr old will take turns fishing, too)
I want to make a set now! I might even fish for a while. Nice and relaxing while being enjoyable and you're almost guaranteed to catch something!  Wink

So funny how so many people share this memory.  Smiley

Thank you.  Smiley  We actually had our Christmas today since my partner had to work Christmas.  Aria loved fishing and to be honest, I had a blast as well.  I used a rare earth magnet so despite being sewn into the felt hook, it worked really well.  Aria was able to catch and keep the fish on the hook, but it was still a little challenge as she had to get it close enough to the D-ring.

Finally finished! Took longer than I thought.  Maybe it just seemed longer because my 5yr old was "helping." Cheesy
She was excited to see everything come together though. She wasn't sure what was going on for a while.  10yr old joined in the fun after everything was finished. I didn't have a dowel, so I duct taped some wooden chopsticks together. It'll do until I can get to the store.
Thanks for posting this and linking the tutorial. Hopefully this will keep my kids amused for a few minutes. Wink

Yes, whenever Aria "helps" me things tend to take longer.  Smiley
Aria is still playing with it today which is a good sign.  I was thinking it might be funny to add a felt tin can, felt boot, and some other creatures.
