Everyone loves board games and it’s a lot of fun to create your very own. All you need is:
- Paper or cardboard
- Markers or crayons
- A die
- Natural items as playing pieces
Your child’s age will determine how much scaffolding and assistance will be needed. It’s often helpful to have the basic frame created the first time and let children fill in the colors and details (roll again, skip a turn, go back 2 spaces, etc). Then, let children’s imaginations and creativity go wild. Talk through the way the game works with your child(ren) before beginning to play – a clear understanding of rules will help everything run smoothly.
