A game that lets kids act silly and encourages
imaginative game play.
I love to create games. One day my
then two very young daughters said, "Why donít you make a game we can play?" So, I thought it'd be fun to create a game together that we could all play. I gave them some coins for their playing pieces, and found a die to get us started. One of my daughters preferred to use a doll shoe for her playing piece instead, and then my other daughter had to find something to be her piece. We started with a bunch of round circles on the board for spaces, and then linked them together with a single line that made a loop. Written in each circle was something that a player had to do when they landed on it. The game didn't have much color with just the circles with words in them, and so I got some crayons and they added some color to the circles and the board, which they enjoyed doing and also made the game a lot cooler looking. We had a lot of fun creating and playing the game that we called the silly game.
I made a small revision since the first game, but the idea behind the game is still there. Now there are four categories designated by four shapes. Circle-make a face, Square-make a sound or noise, Triangle-do an activity, and Star-make believe you are something. Players move their pieces around the board and do what the spaces say to score that shape. There is a picture in with each shae that goes along with the activity. The first player to score two of each of the four shapes wins the game.
My copy made from the graphics here.
Note: It still needs to be colored in with some crayons,
but that's part of the fun.
