go old school with a diy holiday game

Here's a fun little project that I designed to keep the kids busy this holiday season. It's a game that is not played on a cell phone, tablet or tv ... it's old school and it can be played by two or more people. Put it on the kids table to keep the little ones busy for a little longer so the adults finish their meal in peace.

I designed the game for an issue of Creative Living Magazine and you can find the download for the printable as well as the complete instructions to make the game here.

A quick recap of the diy instructions: The game is contained in a soup/ice cream container. Six small wood blocks were used to create the "dice". My (free) download printable includes both the art for the top of the container lid and the game instructions that will be place on the inside of the lid.

I painted the wood blocks with chalkboard paint and used a white chalk marker and small letter stamps to spell out "jolly". To create the Santa face on the sixth side of each of the dice, I drew a moustache and two dots for eyes.

The red and white stripe washi tape is a cute finishing detail. If you can't find a striped washi tape like mine, look for a pattern and colour combination that matches the printable.

Now I'm off to finish my holiday baking. Happy Holidays!
