For these I got
- wooden blocks from a thrift store
- a cute book ( in some foreign language... that sure made it easy to cut )
Then sand the blocks smooth,cut images to fit the side and glue and you are good to play or gift wrap them
To play !!
You need two or more participants. The first one rolls the block and starts a story with the picture that comes on top, then the next one rolls it again and adds a sentence or two using the picture that comes on top. and so on.
Baba, and I had to play the game in front of M for the first few times to give her the Idea. Next she started rolled the dice for me and baba. And eventually after a few games she was totally into it. Now she makes stories better than ours :) I feel writing them down sometimesWhy I love this game !!!
Because each time you come up with a different story and the creativity of the simple block never ends
Try rolling two blocks together and try to come up with a sentence that has both the things in it.
