Good morning blog friends :)
Today I have a little DIY action for ya...
This is a match game I made for my kids when we traveled to Florida for vacation this past summer. I made this so they would have something they could play with in the car as well as in the condo.
I used some patterned paper, various Studio Calico acrylic stamps, StazOn Black Ink, Sizzix Wood Sheets, Sizzix Circles Scallops #2 die, Sizzix adhesive sheets, and my Big Shot to make the pieces.
I made a "sandwich" of patterned paper, adhesive, and the wood sheets to run through the Big Shot to cut out the scalloped circles. Then I used my StazOn ink to stamp the images onto the wood side of the match game pieces. You could also use chipboard instead of the wood sheets, but I really liked the look and texture of the wood. I then put them in these cute little tins I found at Hobby Lobby...and voila!
I made 24 pieces and split them between my 3 kids so that in the car they could play with the game by themselves. At the condo they collected all the pieces and played together :) It rained several days during our trip so this came in pretty handy a few times.
This was a fun and easy DIY and the kids really liked the stamped images I used for the game. It was funny to hear Avery say what she thought the images were...she even guessed most of them right!
Hopefully this is a little inspiration for the next trip you take and want to diy something fun for the kiddos...
Until next time, have an inspired day ;)
