Day Twenty-Two

Theme: Board Game Challenge

How many times have you ever said "I'm bored?" I'm guessing at least once or twice.


Hopefully you've been finding many things to do at home, along with your school work. 


Today's activity is a Board Game challenge. The word board, has a couple of different spellings and meanings.

The word boredom comes from the word bored. It means a feeling of being left without anything in particular to do. If you're feeling bored, making a board game will take that feeling away.


Have you ever made a board game? Making a board game takes time and imagination. Two things that you have! It's also a great challenge and fun!







You can make a board game for two or more people. You can use many different materials, things you have at home. Old boxes can be cut-up and used as the board. You can paint the board or glue white paper down. You can use small objects that you have in your house to use as part of the game. You can use dice or make a spinner with numbers on it. You can make cards with numbers or drawings.

It's fun to think about games you already like. It might help you with ideas of where to start.


The theme could be about one of your favorite subjects.


  • An idea is the first step.- What will your game be about? 

  • How many players will there be?

  • Rules for the game.

  • Give your game a name.

Time to design the game.​ You'll want to gather your materials. You can use paper, cardboard, yarn, paint, glue, glitter. You may need a ruler and a pencil. You can also use sticks or small rocks from nature. The ides are endless. Have fun developing and creating your game.


When your game is finished, you'll want to test it by playing with another player or two. Once you play, you may need to make adjustments. Be patient and enjoy creating!












Your game does not have to be difficult or complicated. You'll want it to be easy enough for everyone to understand. You'll have to be able to explain it easily.
