a bit of cardboard sticks
colored pencils sharpie
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.
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!
