And, the very next day, Mickey's Road Trip Matching Game was born.
1. Honey or I will name a category and a pattern for the win. Say...cars, licence tags, billboards or fast food signs as categories, in your typical Bingo patterns (across, down, diagonal, all over, cross, x and four corners.)
2. The littles (mainly John) will scour the landscape for matches, call them out when he sees them and cross them off on his chart with a dry erase marker. (There is a very strong likelihood that the baby will be coloring with said dry erase markers on the backs of my seats, windows and his face during this phase of the game.)
4. Wash clean with baby wipes and go at it again!
Here's how to make your very own:
2. Arrange the paint chips on a piece of cardstock. Be sure to put them in different locations on each card.
3. Should you wish, create something signifying the name of the game on the reverse side of the cardstock. I used the same Brady Bunch and Waltograph free fonts as in the signature books shared yesterday.
4. Laminate the games. I did these at Kinkos for $1.99 each. Their lamination is stronger than the one at Lakeshore. (But four times as costly.)
I'm guessing the littles will get at least two dollars worth of enjoyment out of these...
Thrilled for the features at Disney Baby, The New Home Ec and More Than ABCs and 123s!
