How Do You Make a Paper Fishing Pole?

Making a paper fishing pole is a great way to entertain children at a party or family gathering. Not only is it fun, but it’s also an inexpensive craft that can be done with just a few materials.

All you need is some paper, string, and some crafting supplies. With just these three things, you can make a fishing pole that will be sure to impress your guests.

To begin making your paper fishing pole, start by cutting two pieces of cardstock or regular paper into 3-inch circles. Then, take one of the circles and fold it in half twice so that you have four equal sections.

Take the other circle and cut it into four equal sections as well. Now you should have four semi-circles from each piece of paper.

Next, take one of the semi-circles and fold it in half lengthwise so that it forms a cone shape. Secure the edges with tape or staples then repeat this process for all of the other semi-circles. Now you have four cone shapes which will form the body of your fishing pole.

Once the body pieces are ready, take some string or yarn and cut it into four equal lengths (about 18 inches each). Take one piece of string and thread it through one of the cone shapes so that there is an equal amount on either side (about 9 inches each). Tie a knot at each end to secure the string to the cone shape then repeat this process for all four cones.

The Finishing Touches:

Now that your paper fishing pole is assembled all you need to do is add some finishing touches! You can glue on some googly eyes for extra fun or write words like “fish” or “reel” on each cone with a marker. You can even add glitter or other decorations if desired!

Once everything has been glued and dried, your paper fishing pole is ready for use! Conclusion: Making a paper fishing pole is simple yet fun craft project for kids that requires just three materials: cardstock/paper, string/yarn, and crafting supplies such as googly eyes and markers. With just these items plus some creativity, they can create their very own unique fishing poles that they will enjoy using during playtime!
