When your best friend is getting married, you want to give them something special and from the heart. Trying to come up with the perfect gift was a very challenging feat… My husband and I were talking one day about things we could possible make or build rather than buy and all of our ideas seemed cheesy until we put two and two together! One thing we always love to do with family is play a “washer toss” game, so we thought it might be nice to make one for Natalie and Koy but the idea never really stuck. That is until my husband figured out the theme!! Nat (also known as bug) and Koy (also known as fish) provided the perfect theme themselves!
Once we had a plan, we started construction on the washer game! We decided that the bugs would be the washers and the fish would be what you try to toss them in. Instead of leaving it at that, we added one more feature, which is to “fish” the bug out of the fish’s mouth. We created a “fishing line” with a magnet at the end and added the option to deny points to the other team!
We are so pleased with how it turned out and are so glad that they love it! Not only was I excited to give a handmade present, I also absolutely loved the time I got to spend making it with my husband!
