Mine looked nothing like Joel's fishing set of course, which looked like it came straight out of an expensive toy store. (Joel is a professional artist!) I had to work with whatever materials I can find in the house like unused chopsticks, sewing thread, paper clip, and fridge magnets etc. And since I involved Kai in almost every step of the way, you can expect things to look, well, unfinished. I drew a few fishes and a turtle for Kai to color in. Then he drew a turtle on his own, which looked really adorable!
I asked him what kind of faces he wanted on them (e.g. angry, happy).
When everything's done, we went fishing together.
He loved the small starfish I made for him so much that he refused to let me fish it!
