As I mentioned in my last post, I have been hard at work making some fun things for my kids to play with on our road trip we are taking this summer! I have FINALLY finished all the projects and took pictures of them all to share with you.
I sure hope the kids enjoy these. I took sheet metal and made these magnet board games. On one side of all the boards are BINGO games. I used images from many cricut cartridges to draw the images on white paper using mini gel pens with a pencil gripper around them. They came out much better than I had hoped! I arranged them all in Design Studio so I was able to draw them out and then cut them out all at the same time. I wanted to cut out the letters for BINGO with my cricut, but as I was running out of time to get them done I settled for some letter stickers that I have had FOREVER!
On the back side of each BINGO game is a different game. There is a Tic-Tac-Toe, Colors, numbers, shapes, and letters. I plan on playing a few different games where they need to find object in those colors/shapes or find the numbers/letters on signs, etc.
I also made a few things with material. I made a new and improved crayon roll for each kid. (It took me a few tries before finding the best way to close them!) I am hoping these keep the crayons up off the floor and seat in the car!
Lastly, I gathered a bunch of small objects and created a beanbag I Spy game for each kid. I thought these would be great to use on any trip in the car and for keeping them busy and quiet in church!
