Warning:This is an important part of the project. You do not want the magnets to come off allowing for the possibility of being swallowed. This is not a toy for children under 3 or any child who likes to put things in his mouth.

Jean, thanks for your kind words. I made this for my 4 yr. old grandson and he loved it. I really like the way it is a toy where the child can be successful. They have to focus and really try, but they will be able to do it and be so proud of themselves. I think the trick is in using magnets that are strong enough and fish that are light enough. I tried it out first to be sure of both and found the right combination. Hope your son enjoys it as much as my grandson.
Ooh, Robyn, great idea. Now you've got me thinking of all the other ways I could make this. I suppose you could choose any theme and just make the "fish" to go along with the theme. I love your idea of making leaves instead of fish.
That is awesome and very creative! I'm going to use that for my son's birthday. Thanks for sharing.
I am thinking of doing a Fall one with leaves to pick up with a magnet! Love the idea and it can be used for any season!
Thanks, Lolly. This project came together very quickly. Deciding on which fabrics to use took the most time :)
Very cute...my daughter would love this! Now if only I could find the time to make it ;-)
