Put up a "Gone Fishing" sign! Play this fun fishing game-you create it with Crayola® Twistables™.

  • 1.

    Watch different fish. Notice how some fish are long and sleek while others are round and chubby. See the beautiful rainbow colors and interesting patterns. They help to disguise and camouflage fish so they can catch food and hide from enemies.

  • 2.

    On construction paper, use Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils to draw about eight or 10 of your favorite fish. Use Crayola Twistables to color in the beautiful patterns and rainbow colors. Rub gently with a bit of paper towel to make the colors gleam as they would under water.

  • 3.

    Use Crayola Scissors to cut out your fish. Trace your finished fish on more paper. Color a second set of fish to match the first set. Polish. Cut out. Slip a paper clip on the end of each fish.

  • 4.

    To make a fishing hole, use a recycled oatmeal box, plastic coffee can, or similar container.

  • 5.

    Cut construction paper to cover the outside of your fishing hole. Use your colored pencils and Twistables to draw waves or ripples on the paper. Wrap the paper around the container and tape firmly in place. Place all the fish in the fishing hole.

  • 6.

    Use the tubes from your Twistables to make fishing poles. For each pole, cut a length of string about 18 inches (45 cm). Tie one end on the end of a Twistables tube and tape to seal. Tie or tape a small magnet at the other end. You're ready to go fishing!

    To play, take turns holding your pole over the water and trying to hook a fish. Each person has two turns, and if they catch matching fish, they keep them. The person with the most pairs of fish at the end of the game, wins.

    Use your imagination to create new fishing games. Write numbers on the backs of fish, so the person with the highest sum is the winner. Use the game to match states and their capitals, or practice multiplication tables. Have fun thinking up more ways to u
