Designed for elementary children, Create Your Own Board (or boardless) Game is a project that comes with suggestions and templates for creating a game using inexpensive materials. Exemplars to demonstrate the use of each template are provided. The child is involved with improvising objects for new purposes, and piloting the finished product with a peer or adult. The child is encouraged to brainstorm the objective of the game, its rules, and the supplies needed, using a planning booklet before actually creating the game. Ideal for a rainy day activity at home or an enrichment, theme-based project at school.
