You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Print, cut and trace the fish shapes onto the adhesive foam colors of choice. Choose a color for the body and a contrasting color for the fin, tail, lips and spots. You will need 2 fish cutouts for each fish, one for the front and another one for the back of the fish. 
 
Step 2
Peel off the backing of one of the fish and place the magnet onto the sticky side. Then cut a 12" length of yarn and press one end onto the sticky side. Next, peel the backing off of the fish that will go on the back and carefully stick them together. Once they are stuck together you won't be able to pull them back apart, so make sure you get them lined up. 
Step 3
Stick on the other parts of the fish to finish decorating them. 
Step 4
Tie the other length of the yarn onto the wood dowel and glue a magnet onto the end of the yarn. This magnet will attract the other magnet that is inside the fish. 
Step 5
Repeat for more fish.
