It has been awhile since I made some grid games! With fall right around the corner, I wanted to get these Apple Grid Games complete! So, this is what I came up with!
We usually play our Grid Games along with our Education Cubes and the coordinating insert cards. Using standard dice is possible with some of the games. However, we think it is much more fun with the Education Cubes! To play the first game, roll the cube and count the number of objects on the cube. Using counters of some sort, cover the same number of objects on the grid until it is full. To play the second game, roll the cube with the different colored apple insert cards. Find and cover a matching apple. Continue until the grid is full. (Click here for information on the Apple insert cards.)
Helpful Hints: I prefer to slide the game into a page protector and use it on top of a magnetic cookie sheet. We use our puff ball magnets as counters to cover the grid. As an option, you could use dry erase markers and simply mark off the objects on the grid rather than using counters. Click here to see one of our grid games in action!
