Fishing game:

I finally found the right magnets for my fishing rod at your store! I have used the fishing game for a while now in kids play groups, at wedding and on other occasions. Here is a quick guide on how to make the game accessories yourself:

Required material:

For the fishing rod:
  • 1 ring magnet R-15-06-06-N
  • 1 round wood rod
  • 1 piece of string
  • Acrylic colours

For the fish and packages:
  • Grommets/ round head fasteners/ paper clips

Instructions:

For the fishing pole, cut the round wooden rod to the desired length and carve a small notch near the top so that the string will stay in place.
Paint the wooden rod to your liking and tie the string around the notch. For safety reasons, especially when playing with children, you have to make sure the ring magnet is tied securely to the end of the string and doesn’t come off during play.
Lastly, attach grommets, paper clips or round head fasteners to the homemade fish and gift ribbons. Now your fishing game is ready. As always, do not let children play unattended with these small parts.
Note from the supermagnete team:
  • Please make sure to review our safety tips.
  • The suggested ring magnet is actually too strong for this application. For small paper fish we recommend the ring magnet R-06-02-02-G and for slightly bigger fish R-10-04-05-N or R-10-04-05-G.
