I’m so excited about this Fun Bunchems Board Game! I just think it turned out so cute and my kids played with it for hours last week. They are huge fans of toys where you can use your imagination and I love that this game facilitates that. We played it with the new Bunchems building toys and it was a blast!
Of all the qualities I want to teach my children, CREATIVITY is one of the highest on the list. The reason is because I believe you can be creative in everything you do. Because I’ve always been artistic, people have always told me they wish they were creative like me. It drives me CRAZY when people say that because there are so many different ways a person can be creative…you just have to think in a different way and I believe that train of thought starts when you’re young.
To play this game, you’ll need my printables and a set of building toys like the Bunchems Mega Pack. Your child will spin the arrow and whatever it lands on, your child will build something from that category. Your choices are food, animals, weather, vehicles, shapes and anything random. With Bunchems, my kids could mold anything…they connect easily and come apart easily. Plus, they were easy to clean up because they stick together!
To make the board game, you’ll need:
- Free Printable Board Game, for personal use only
- Xacto Knife or scissors
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush (use an old one)
- Glue Gun
- 4 Paper Straws (optional)
- Blunt Needle
- Large Bead
- Daisy Lid
- Print and cut the printables.
- Trace the outside of the square game onto a piece of cardboard, then cut it out with an Xacto knife or scissors.
- Paint Mod Podge onto the cardboard, then place the game on top.
- To give it a glossy effect, you can paint Mod Podge on top of the game piece. Make sure if you use an inkjet printer, it doesn’t spread the ink around.
- Let it dry, then place a large dab of glue in the middle of the game piece. Place the needle on that and hold until it stays in place. Make sure it is secure
- Glue around the edges of the daisy lid and place it in the middle of the board game, then add the arrow .
- Place some hot glue to the middle of the bead, then hold it in place on the top of the needle.
- OPTIONAL: To finish off the board game, hot glue some paper straws around the edges of the cardboard.
You can also just print this out and place a brad in the middle of the game and arrow. You certainly don’t have to go through the effort of creating a board game if you simply want a quick and fun game to play with your kids!
