Many moons ago, when I was teaching I used to make my own games for the children. I did this firstly because it was cheaper and secondly I found that my own game exactly matched my learning objectives whilst remaining fun.
A favourite was an Old MacDonald's farm game. The nursery children sang the song and then we threw two dice - one with numbers and one with the picture of a farm yard animal and the child had to make the noise of the animal the number of times the number die rested on. Simple fun but very effective :)
I no longer teach very much so have been going through my resources to see what I could use for craft projects. And I found the animal die ....
I carefully peeled off the animal stickers leaving the wooden cube and then I decoupaged it and added some quotes to inspire....
This will be a small stocking filler gift.
I left one side without a quote so the recipient can add her own should she wish to.
I really enjoyed making this, hope the recipient likes it.
