Make-It-Yourself Games

Often when a game gets broken or has lost pieces, it just seems easier to go out and buy a new one.  I try and challenge the children to remake the same game with items we have or can be easily donated to us.  One of the children's favourites is Pick Up Sticks.
We used bamboo skewers(with the tips trimmed off) and coloured them.  We used a paper towel tube as a storage container.

The newest favourite and a great take-a-long game, is X's and O's.

Cardboard bottom from a juice bottle pack.

Colour, paint or decorate the board. 

 Buttons as the X's & O's.

CHALLENGE:  What games can you build from things around the Centre or house?

Until You Read Again.....
