The Sock Fish Game

I’m on a roll this week – finally doing some projects that I have pinned on Pinterest!  I captured this photo of Nolan that was inspired by a picture pose on Pinterest.  Yesterday Elaine and I made a fishing game, also from Pinterest. 

We took old socks – ones that were too small, or had missing mates, and stuffed them to make fish.  In the toe of each sock is a heavy duty magnet.  We tied off the ends with ribbon, so that the ankle of the sock looks like a tail.

Then we had fun gluing buttons, wiggly eyes, bows, mustaches, and foam fins onto them.  And finally, we were able to go fishing using a dowel rod, string, and additional magnets.  Too much fun!

I found the mustache in a jar of ribbons and bows that my Grams gave me.  I couldn’t resist putting it on our giant fish, and I think he is just too cute!
