spring make camp: fishing felt board counting game

Create a fun game with felt! Throw in some math as an added bonus!
Step 1

Step 1 Click here to download and print the template from michaels.com; then cut out the shark and fish patterns.

Step 2

Step 2 Cut a scalloped edge on the short side of the blue felt to look like waves. Use glue to attach to the white piece of felt. Set aside and let dry. 

Step 3

Step 3 With a marker, trace the following pattern pieces onto felt; then cut out the shapes:

  • Shark Body: Silver Gray Felt
  • Shark Lip: Silver Gray Felt
  • Teeth: White Felt
  • Shark Mouth: Baby Pink Felt 
Step 4

Step 4 Trace the fish pattern onto different colors of felt and cut out the shapes.  


Step 5

Step 5 Glue wiggle eyes to the shark and the fishes. Let dry.


Step 6

Step 6 Assemble the shark pieces and glue them in place. Do not glue the whole mouth piece to the shark body, but glue along the bottom of the mouth piece only, so that it creates a flap to put the fishes in when the shark eats them! Let dry. 


Step 7

Step 7 Place the shark on top of the blue felt and glue in place. Let dry. 

TIP: To play the game, assign different point amounts to each color of fish and feed the shark! Add up the number of points the shark ate.
