Foam Fishing

Garden Bin Preschool Craft

Play a fun game fishing just like the fishermen Jesus told to follow Him!


Plastic container
Foam sheets
Hot glue
Small magnets (Note: Be safe! Ensure children do not ingest magnets. Also, do not leave children unattended around water.)


  1. Cut out small fish from the foam sheet and draw faces with the marker.
  2. Cut lengths of string and tie them to the end of the dowels to create “fishing poles.”
  3. Hot glue magnets to the end of the fishing lines as “hooks” and the backs of the fish.
  4. Fill the container with water and add your fish.
  5. Take turns fishing by matching up the magnets on your fishing pole and a fish!
  6. Talk about how Jesus told the fishermen to follow Him. Everyone can be friends with Jesus.
