I have been having fun making grid games and I want to share the most recent one with you!
I made this one with BFIAR users in mind. First, I saw Michelle’s super cute Angus Lost post. Then I saw Jolanthe’s Angus Lost printables. Then I saw this cute Scottie Dog graphic that I just had to use! So, for those who are reading Angus Lost by Marjorie Flack, this one is for you…or for those who just love Scottie dogs!
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 Scottie Dog 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!
