owl be sad if you don't let me play!
my kids love knock knock jokes
and they also love board games-not hard when their dad is a certified board game geek lol
also being a teacher i was after a simple learn the colours game for my littlest ones to play and thought what better than to use what resources i have to make my own game
the cute owl from the new punch bunch sale-a-bration set was perfect for the job
so i set to work
i recycled a tin from some retired su xmas stickers and covered it with dsp, whisper white cut from the scallop square die, a strip of dsp run through a crimper and, of course, an owl!
the game boards are a square of dsp, a scallop square of whisper white and 4 different coloured owls which i then laminated so it would be a tad more durable with those little fingers using it
(plus it would make it too hard for little miss 1 to pick off the owls-lord knows she has tried already hahaha).
the games pieces are different coloured owls punched out and then laminated.
on the back of the owls i have also written the names of the colours in english and maori as an extension for my older kids
here they all are in their tin-easy to pack up and put away and not lose the pieces....in my dreams lol
ah well.... at least it is easy to re-produce aye?!!!
the rules are very simple.
pick up an owl-if it matches one of yours you keep it.
if not, put it back.
when you have all 4 you are the winner!
for the bigger kids they have to read the english words, spell them
and say the equivalent maori word.
now all i need to do is think of some other ways i could make some games with my stamps
