Fishing for Men

Fishing for Men


Try this craft to help you remember you are fishing for men.

You will need:

1 paper plate or dessert plate

1 pair of scissors

Glue, tape or stapler

Crayons, markers, or paints

Some fishing line or string


Cut the center from the plate for the body of the fish.

Cut fins and a tail from the crinkly edged scraps.

Glue, tape or staple the fins and tail to the body.

Decorate the fish with crayons, markers or paint.

Use a marker to write the names of the people you would like to “catch” for Jesus.

Attach the fishing line at the mouth with tape.

Hang your fish where you will remember to read the names every day.

Begin fishing by praying for the names on your fish. You can also pray for yourself that your actions and words will show them Jesus. Go fishing and let Jesus give you a boat load!
