Making a magnetic fishing pole is a great way to help teach your children the basics of fishing. It’s also a fun and creative way to bond with your kids.
With just a few supplies, you can have a homemade fishing pole in no time.
Before you get started, you will need to gather some supplies. You will need a broom handle, strong magnet, string, and some light-weight objects (like paper clips or bottle caps) for bait. You may also want to get some scissors for cutting the string.
Attaching the Magnet:
The next step is to attach the magnet to one end of the broom handle. This can be done with either glue or tape. Make sure that it is securely attached so that it won’t come off when you are playing with it.
Tying on the String:
Once the magnet is securely attached, it’s time to tie on the string. Cut a long piece of string that is twice as long as the broom handle. Then tie one end of the string to one end of the broom handle and then tie off the other end at the other end of the handle.
Now it’s time to add some bait! Take your light-weight objects (like paper clips or bottle caps) and tie them onto the string near where it’s tied onto the handle. You can add as many or as few pieces of bait as you want.
Making a magnetic fishing pole is a great way to get your kids outdoors and learn about fishing basics. With just a few supplies and simple steps, you can have an homemade magnetic fishing pole in no time!
