Making board games for kids is one of our fun activities for Early Years.
Scrap cardboard is great for making games.
We used boxes from items that came in the post.
You can also use food delivery boxes – or even takeaway food boxes.
The whole family will enjoy these games.
We used bottle tops for counters.
The first person to cover all their squares – and shout ‘full house’ – wins the game.
Play this well-known game on paper or by making your own pieces and board.
Nice idea: play the postie
One family has been playing this game with their postman. They hang up a grid on their front door and add their move each week.
Personal, social and emotional development: sharing and taking turns.
Communication and language: learning new words; developing listening skills and understanding.
Mathematics: saying and recognising some numbers; developing counting skills.
