wood game

Today, I made a wood game. My dad was chopping off an outrageous amount of branches off our tree, and I could not wait to make something out of them! Here's what you need:

a bit of cardboard                                           sticks
colored pencils                                               sharpie
colored markers

Think of a board game where you have to use playing pieces, dice, and bonus pieces. Then, make a board for your game out of cardboard, colored pencils, and a sharpie. Make the pieces out of sticks cut into short cylinders. If you need to, make the playing pieces different from each other by coloring on them with markers. Then make dice by cutting sticks into various lengths. Finally, make bonus pieces that are easily distinguishable from the playing pieces and the dice.

Other Ideas
For this game, you can do extra by making a decorated box for your game or writing an instruction manual. You could also make a collection of board games and play them with your friends and family. This would also make a nice gift. Who knows, someday you might be a famous board game maker. You can choose!
