Take It and Make It Thursdays - Fish Travel Game

Boy am I excited to share with you this week for the Take It and Make It Linky Party brought to you by Cynthia at 2nd Grade Pad!!!  Each Thursday, you'll find something that you can take with you and make at home!  You can look through past entries and find some pretty cool stuff to make.  While you are visiting Cynthia's Blog, be sure to show her some love. :)  I know I love reading comments from YOU... I am sure she will too!

I'm sharing with you a simple travel game activity that I created for publication.  You'll probably be seeing more of my fish/ocean animals as we draw closer to summer!  I can hardly wait! :)

Fish Travel Game 

Click the picture to download template or below in the materials list. :)

Materials Needed:

  • Magnet Paper
  • Scissors
  • Sharpie Pen (Non-Bleed)
  • Printer
  • Ziploc Baggies
  • Small metal tin or cookie sheet

This simple activity is perfect for summer travel with the kids! You can pre-make multiple sets, and put them inside a small metal tin or pack with a small cookie sheet. If you prefer recycled items, tin cookie tin lids also work great for portable work tins.


  1. Print template onto Magnet Paper.
  2. Use a Sharpie Marker to color in, or draw numbers, shapes, alphabet letters onto the printed out magnet paper. Let dry completely.
  3. Cut out individual game pieces.
  4. Store game pieces in Ziploc baggies.

I wanted to let you know that my friend Sonya DeHart (Sonya DeHart Designs) is having a HUGE sale on her website this week as a fundraiser for her little boy who was recently diagnosed with Autism. He will require some special services and resources, and this is one way that WE can help her out. Many of the clipart/paper items are $1.00. It's a good time to stock up, while helping her out.  Sonya is such a sweet gal. She's always been happy to help whenever I have needed anything.  Be sure to pass the word along to all of your friends too! ;)

Thank you to everyone who has stopped by and left me notes on my Blog.  You are awesome!
