This year I have been chosen to be a #BostikBlogger which basically means our family are going to be sent a box of arts and crafts supplies and given the challenge to create something fun to share with my readers each month. This month is Easter themed and we received some great arts supplies, some that we wouldn’t usually use during our crafting sessions.
I had a rare Sunday with just P1 and P3 recently, which meant I could really focus with P1 whilst her baby sister played. I spread everything on the table and allowed P1 to have a think about what she wanted to make. We decided together to make an Easter game and here’s how you can make one too:
You Will Need:
- 1 X A4 Card in a Easter colour, we’ve gone with yellow
- 2 X A4 felt preferably two or more different colours, we’ve got light pink and light purple
- 1 piece of foam, ours is white
- 4 Large Buttons or counters
- Blu Tack
- Adhesive Craft Tape
- 8 Mini Easter eggs, ours are craft ones but you could pick edible ones for some extra fun and excitement
- 2 craft flowers
- An Easter chick
- A dice, or a template to make one yourself
- A mini Easter basket
1. Firstly, make your dice if you need to. Using craft adhesive tape, tape a border around the entire A4 piece of card.
2. Using one colour felt sheet cut out 6 squares. Cut small egg shapes with the white foam, this will be a great base to Blu Tack your Easter eggs to. Then cut circle stepping stones from the remaining colour felt enough to cover the board. Rearrange to the shape of the trail you want. Stick the two flowers along the trail too.
3. Stick all pieces down with glue when you’re happy.
4. Blu Tack the basket to the end of the trail. Using left over foam creating a score board representing the squares, eggs and flowers.
5. BluTac the Easter eggs to the board. The game is complete.
The aim of the game is to roll the dice, move along the trail and collect points. The one with the highest points when they reach the finish line is the winner. They get to keep the cute little Easter chick sitting in the basket. You could really switch this game about by adding a sweet treat or coins. It’s a really fun and educational game for children.
