How to make your own DIY puzzle game
What you need
- White cardboard (A3 size)
- Red, blue and yellow cardboard (A4 size)
- VELCRO® Brand Dots
- Free printable shape templates
- Black marker pen
- Pencil/ball point pen
What to do
Time to get crafty! Start by downloading these free printable shape templates and cutting them out. (You’ll be using these as a template so you only need to print out one sheet).
Next, use your paper templates to draw a selection of shapes onto an A3 piece of cardboard. It doesn’t matter how many of each shape you have, or what order they go in. Just make it look fun!
Now to make a selection of coloured shapes! Take some coloured cardboard and use a pencil or ball point pen to draw out a selection of squares, circles and pentagons.
Then simply cut them out! You’ll need about ten shapes (depending on how many you draw on your large piece of cardboard).
By now you should be able to see your DIY puzzle game taking shape!
All that’s left to do is stick one half of a VELCRO® Brand Dots on each shape outline, and the other half on the back of each coloured shape.
