Hello!!!!! Are you……at home…..not allowed out….wanting to do something creative? What a coincidence!!!! Me too!While we are indoors I will post Monday to Friday something creative for you to do . Hope you enjoy.
A BOARD GAME
My son’s school gives out Family projects once in a while and this one to make a board game was something we put a lot of effort into and still play. The one we did had to be based on something Victorian, so the game was based on a game called The victorian bicycle game. You will have all seen/ played a game like this as it’s a very simple premise. Roll the dice to get to the end but if you land on a certain place you could go back, forward etc just like snakes and ladders. Because it’s a simple style you can adapt it to any theme. As I said ours was Victorian books and so we did some research on that and added some info cards. So if there is a subject your child is interested in this is a great way of getting them to think about the info they want to research, draw, include etc. We made the moving pieces out off Fimo, but cardboard/paper pieces will work or anything else you can find.
I started this blog last year , I am not very savvy so I am afraid this is as simple as a blog can get !!! But hopefully you will find some creative things to do here and hopefully I will get better at the blog! It is aimed at children but there is no age limit to being creative and it is very good for your mental health.So hope you enjoy creating with me. Hope you are all safe x Emma
So let’s start. Here is the board game we made. I made the snake pattern and everything else my son did.Very much a collaboration.
