Keep your kids entertained with this Shapes and Colors Printable Board Game! It’s easy to put together and fun for young children.
Last year, I created a fun board game to help my kids learn about emotions. It was a HUGE hit.
I wasn’t expecting them to be as into it as they were and they asked to play it over and over again. I can’t believe it took me a year to create another one because this is an awesome way to beat boredom in the summer!
My kids are old enough that they already know all their colors and shapes, but they still like to play this game. I would recommend this for preschool age to about 2nd grade, but older kids might like it, too!
To make the Shapes and Colors Printable Board Game, you’ll need:
- Free Printable, for personal use only
- White card stock
- Glue Gun
- Game Pieces (I used our Sorry game pieces)
Print printables on white card stock. Next, cut out paper dice, fold at each line, then glue the flaps to the inside of the box. Then you’ll cut out play cards.
To play this game, you’ll lay the cards face down; then a player will choose a card. The cards say roll a color, roll a shape, or will tell you to move forward or backward. You will either move your game piece or roll the die according to the card. If you roll one of the dice, move your game piece to whatever shape or color it lands on.
Since it’s so hot where I live, we need to have a lot of indoor activities like this printable board game. Either that or we have to go on a road trip (and of course, I have printables for that, too!)
What do you do to keep the kids busy in the summer?
If you love this great boredom buster for kids, you’ll love these too!
