DIY Cardboard Board Game

For the first day of maker camp, we made games out of cardboard!

Mr. Anthony spent the first couple minutes engaging the kids in a discussion about what a game was, what you needed to make a game and the materials normally found in games.  

Then the kids drew out and designed their games on a piece of paper. 

The kids initially wanted to just grab the cardboard and start making their games with out planning it out first.  While planning, they quickly realized that their game would not have worked as well if they started cutting before taking a second to think about what they wanted to make. They learned the value of sketching and planning out ideas before starting on the making process. 

When they were finished with their sketches, they each got up in front of the class and explained their game design idea. The other students gave them lots of helpful suggestions on how to make their games even better. 

Then they started in on making their cardboard games. 

There was a lot of creativity and enthusiasm. The games ranged from mazes to board games. Many had elaborate rules, and trapped doors where the player’s piece would fall though if they landed on that spot. 

There were also hand-made cardboard dice for the games involving dice.  It was awesome to see that each kids game was unique compared to the next and none of the games were similar to already existing games.
