Kids fish for prizes in a make believe fish pond.

Game type:

Passive. Little or no movement is required.


2 or more players


Fishing pole, prizes, cardboard box


Great for birthday parties. Make your own fish pond by covering a very large cardboard carton with a sheet and decorate by pinning cut-out paper fish to the sheet. You can usually obtain a large appliance or furniture box, which would be ideal for this purpose, at a furniture store. If you can't get a box just hang a decorated sheet over a doorway. Use a fishing rod or a stick or yardstick with a string tied to it would do. Tie a clothes pin on the end of the string. Have a helper sitting in the fish pond (cut out top and back of box to allow him to sit in it to attach favors to the clothes pin when each child goes fishing. I use leftover scraps of giftwrap to wrap the little surprises. Children love to unwrap prizes!
