Paint Sample Magnet Fishing for Toodlers!


Here is an easy way to have some fun with your toddler! Go fishing with Paint samples!

Here is what you will need:
Paint Samples (2 of each color)
Paper Clips (one for each fish)
Scissors
Glue

1. Take 2 paint samples of the same color and glue them together with a paper clip sticking out in between them.

2. Repeat with all the colors that you like!

3. Now use your scissors and cute out fish shapes

Be creative! I cut a jellyfish (the purple one), an octopus (black one) and a star fish (brown one)... the white one is supposed to be a shark, but he is a bit small.

I already had a magnet fishing pole from a magnet puzzle but you could easily make one from a wooden dowel, string and a magnet.

My son LOVED it. He kept saying "More! More fishing Mama!"




Too much fun!

Cute idea! I love paint chips for some reason. I can't leave the hardware store without a handful. (-:

What a great idea! My little one isn't so little anymore, but I just got a niece. I'll have to keep this in mind. I'm always grabbing about 20 samples when trying to choose one paint color! :-)
