My son and I made this car racing game last week. He had the idea of what he wanted to make, and I helped cut the paper 🙂 We used his little Cars figures for the tokens and a large die that I bought at the Dollar Tree for other homemade games.
Board games are such a simple thing to make and I find that kids really enjoy making them and playing them! You can make any themed game by creating a path with spaces to count and move and a die or hand-made cards. You could even put colors, letters, or shapes on the spaces and make colored cards if you want your child to practice colors, letters, shapes, etc.
