Encourage and Inspire Young Game Inventors with Simple Prototyping Supplies
Encouraging children to design their own board games and card games fosters imagination, creativity and and develops problem solving skills and resourcefulness. Once they have a solid idea for a game in terms of mechanics, a good working prototype makes the whole experience more memorable and fun. Creating a prototype that is functional and beautiful doesn't have to cost a lot of money. Simple craft supplies, found items, and re-purposed materials can make a child's ideas come to life. These practical ideas equip children to make their own customized game components with relative ease.
