fish for refrigerator letters in the bathtub and ever since have wanted to try the same concept but adding the hangman twist. A brand new package of refrigerator magnets means we still have the whole alphabet (two days from now, six of them will likely be hiding with the dust bunnies under my refrigerator); so today seemed the day to jump on it.
Our bathroom is pretty tight; so I didn't actually want to do it in the bathtub, but it actually turned out well to use two small tubs. We separated out the letters into vowels and consonants to make it a little easier to catch the vowels.
For the fishing pole we used a ruler, a string, and a clothespin with a magnet in its "beak."
For the final round, M picked the word and let me fish for the letters. I was very proud of her for doing it exactly right. It seemed like it stretched her mental muscles in a new way which is always good.

Very fun - I could see this as a fun way to practice spelling words when they're a little older, too!
Thanks for sharing with Learning Laboratory at Mama Smiles =)
