- Have your child pick a theme he/ she find interesting
- Decide on the game he/ she wants to make
- Draw the cards
- Play the game.
You will need:
- Heavy card stock cut to size (approximately 4”x 6”)
- Drawing tools
- A reference book that may help with drawing the objects
- A ribbon to tie the bundle or a box
Thoughts and variations:
- This was a lot of work. After a while I jumped in and helped Zoe draw some of the cards. You may want to consider doing this with a couple of kids; each can draw some of the cards.
- Your child may add facts on the cards, so they become more educational. a playful way to summaries a topic. a great tool if you are home schooling.
- This could be a wonderful birthday gift for a friend.
This is an opportunity to talk about supplies. I think it is important to let your kids use artist grade materials, they will enjoy painting and drawing much more. The colors are more brilliant, the brushes are smoother. The paint is more consistent and they last much longer. It is really worth investing in a good set of water colors, the cheap ones are very powdery and the colors are muddy. We have a compact set by Winsor & Newton the girls and I love using, and it is small enough to take on hikes.

Enjoy, as usual
