Play and Learn Game Board

14 Jun

This simple and inexpensive game board is easy to make at home with things you have around the house. You can use it to have fun reinforcing skills your kids learned at school.

Materials

  • File folder
  • Markers
  • Stickers
  • Index cards

Open your file folder and draw a wiggly line with the markers. Make a “Start” and “Finish”. Add stickers along the line for places to land on.

Decorate the front of the file folder for added interest. We used markers, jewels, sequence and wiggly eyes.

Make game cards using index cards. If your child needs to work on recognizing letters, write one letter on each card. If your child needs to work on addition or subtraction, write one math problem (without the answer) on each card, etc.

To play the game, have each player select a marker (coins work well). Place the game cards face down. Player One rolls the die, selects a card and tries to answer the question. If the answer is correct, Player One move the number of spaces on the die. If the answer is incorrect, the player stays where he is. First one to the finish wins.
