Kids are always keen to try out new games, and sometimes its just as fun to make your own new game than to buy a new one from the shop! Making your own board game doesn’t have to be hard. All you need is some creativity and imagination, and a little time.
Here are some of my favourite ideas for DIY kids games from other bloggers.
