Design an original board game to use math skills. Sculpt playing pieces with Crayola® Model Magic. Clear directions and rules are a challenge to create, too!
What are your favorite board games? Which ones use math? Here's your chance to make a game of your own. Design it to challenge your skills!
First, figure out a theme. What math skills and facts do you want to feature? How will players move forward? Plan some frustrating pitfalls. Figure out how players will pay for their mistakes, too. Come up with some great game strategies!
This is one way to design a game. Invent your own imaginative board, game pieces, and rules.
Using Crayola Colored Pencils, sketch a spiral of connected blocks on foam board. Begin in the center. End the spiral near the outer edge of the board. With Crayola Washable Markers, write START on the last block.
Draw a symbol, number, or small picture in each block to match your theme and strategies. Design and color the rest of the board.
Create unique game pieces with Crayola Model Magic. Sculpt landmarks such as bridges, wind tunnels, or trees. To create your own colors, rub color from a Crayola Washable Marker into the modeling material and knead. Do this several times to get the shade you want.
Cut out paper cards with Crayola Scissors. Write directions on each card, such as Move 1 step forward, Move 4 steps back, Go to the red bridge, or Lose a Turn. Make dice with Crayola Model Magic. Can you make dice with more than six sides? Fewer?
To play, players choose a card (or roll the dice) in turn and move accordingly. The first player to reach the center of the board wins.
