You can make this game as easy or difficult as you need. To make it easier, pop the "fish" into a plastic cup – they tend to stand up a bit more in the cup making it easier for your child to catch.

  • Oh wow, I am regularly amazed by all the creations on MoMs made from the humble pipe cleaner


  • These are great as you don’t have to feed them


  • Probably the only type of fishing I could manage.


  • What a cute little game. Love that it is economical and easy to make. Thank you.


  • so cute and easy tto do with out any fussing about. The kids will love it..


  • How very cute and so simple. Thank you


  • don’t forget to fold the last 2mm on the ends of the pipe cleaners to keep them super soft.


  • Splendid! Something to always carry with us thus!!


  • oh I forgot all about the fun of pipe cleaners – thanks for the memory


  • You could also make it more difficult for older children by putting other bits on top of the fish (eg. strips of paper).


  • good idea for some holiday fun!


  • you could also bend an extra little kink in the pipe cleaner to enable the kids to be able to scoop it up better (little ones). you could also attach the pipe cleaner to a stick for added craftyness :)

    • cheers for your idea! i need to get pipe cleaners lol

      • Many arts and craft stores have post Christmas sales and I have bought very cheap supplies for the year.


  • What a great idea. So easy to put together as well.


  • This is so cute – my type of fishing! ;)
