This is a great way to keep the kids practicing their casting. I don't fish, but watching the hubby spot a fish and throw the line right where that fish is, seems like pretty important part of having success while fishing.
First set-up a lure.
You can see in the image below, that he's used a small screw eye (found in frame kits or at your local hardware store) and screwed in a wine cork, then attached to the swivel.
Another option is with a large eraser through a fishing hook.
From here, we set up a goal for the kids to hit when they cast, ie; a specific garden bed, a bucket, hula hoop, etc.
This is also a fun winter backyard activity.
We also started a Chia Gnome! Wheeeee. Odin got a little crazy with the Chia seeds and decided he wanted the Gnome to have "hairy" eyes....
Hopefully soon we will get out to …
