This week I have been sewing a home made three in a row game which will be going to a special place very soon. You don't have to be able to sew to make to make something similar. Felt is such a fab fabric that can be cut so easily into any shape.
Use a larger piece for the game board. Use can use some fabric glue and ribbon to mark out the squares ready for play and away you go. You can personalise to your child's interests whether its butterflies, flowers, dinosaurs or pirates. The opportunities are endless.
Great for developing:
- Language skills through play
- Social skills
- Develops coordination / fine motor skills
Here are some more ideas I have come across on Pinterest:
How fantastic is this Ladybird and Bumblebee set using painted stones and a log?
I love this simple idea using sticks to make the board, easy and cheap too!
Another easy one to put together using buttons. If you haven't any spare buttons, you can buy some amazing shaped ones in your nearest fabric store these days in all shapes, sizes and colours.
This idea is one of the best cheap ideas to make a background game board using a cheap canvas, ribbon and cut out felt shapes. Most of which, if not all of these can be purchased in the pound shop!
