We love sharing educational activities you can put together yourself.  Some of our favorites include-- Hibernation Sensory Bag, Water Balloon Letter Smash and Stamp & Spell in Kinetic Sand.  And today, we are sharing our DIY Game Board using foam stickers.  Foam is a great educational material, and with a few more items you most likely have around your house, you can put together a simple game board to work on a number of concepts!

Make your own gameboard using foam stickers! Adaptable to any theme, but this Heart Gameboard is great for Valentine's Day!
Make your own game board with these materials:
 {any foam stickers will do! we purchased these foam hearts from the dollar store} 

I opted to make our game board in a file folder so that it would be easy to store and a bit more sturdy than plain paper.  Open the file folder up and glue two pieces of construction paper on the inside.  We used scalloped scissors to create a pretty edge on our game board, but that is totally optional!  

Next, with your foam stickers begin making a trail from one end of the file folder to the opposite side.  How you design your game board is completely up to you-- so be creative!  Invite your children to make it with you!  Peeling those stickers is great for fine motor skills!
To play simply add a few manipulatives to use as game pieces-- we used our mini erasers from last week's Stack the Erasers Game and a die.  

We kept our game pretty simple-- roll the die, move that many spaces.  However, you could add in some flashcards, write a word or math problem on each foam sticker your child has to figure out to move ahead, etc.!  

So many ways to personalize this to your child's needs!
