Make a Paint Chip Board Game

By Rachel Meeks

One more idea to use all those paint chips — make a board game!

 

You need paint chips, player pieces (we used lego stacks), and a coin. Flip the coin to move ahead in the game, heads=1 space and tails=2 spaces.

To make the game more fun, add silly activities to do when you land in each space.

Some of our fun things to do:

  • jump up and down
  • turn around 3 times
  • do a silly dance
  • make up a word
  • make a funny face
  • be a robot
  • make an animal sound
  • give a hug
  • clap your hands
  • yell hooray!
  • do 6 jumping jacks

  • I just made this last night with colored cardstock and half of a piece of white posterboard. It didn’t cost me a penny in materials, and it will make a great homemade addition to my birthday gift for my best friend’s 3-year-old twins. I’m going to make your felt town next for my own munchkins. Thank you so much for posting these great ideas. They are some of the best I’ve ever seen on the web… and I read way too many blogs! =)

    Could you please tell me where you go the paint chips without lettering on the front?   We are doing a project for the teacher in an indigent area and we need them.

    Thanks,
