Fishing ABCs with Jar Lids

Age: From 2 years old.

Activity Duration: 5-15 minutes

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Objective(s): To train the child’s hand-eye coordination skill

1. 1 toy fishing rod
2. Jar lids written with a,b,c...
3. 1 bowl to contain the fished jar lids
4. 1 basin containing water
5. 1 tray

1. Call out a letter and demonstrate to your child by fishing the letter with the fishing rod.

2. Call out another letter and let your child try to fish for the letter.

Plastic fishes: 20 DKK (4.80 SGD or 3.80 USD) at Chao Chao at Lyngy Station

Additional Information:
I got this idea from seeing a toddler playing with the toy sold in Amazon (see below). Instead of buying from Amazon which cost 50 USD, it is much cheaper to make it myself. Joshua tried this today, but he quickly asked for the fishes. I think I will draw some pictures of fishes on the lids, when I have some time.
