This Childrenís Day, make your own eco-friendly indoor game with
of us love playing indoor games. When we have a gathering or a
sleepover with friends, it is so much fun to get together and
play these games. Today we will help you make your very own
eco-friendly indoor game. You can customise and make it on
whatever theme you want ó pirates, jungle etc.
Caps of old
plastic bottles ó to make your game pieces
paste (made with one part glue and one part water)
of an old toilet paper roll
cardboard and draw any shape you want. I have drawn the shape as
shown in the image. Now make a path along with the shape. With
the help of an adult, cut the cardboard in the required shape
To begin with,
letís make trees and grass. To make the trunk of the tree,
take the cardboard tube of the toilet paper roll and stick it to
the centre of the board, with the help of a tape.
Now to increase
the width of the tree, take some old newspaper, fold and make
strips. Fold from one side and stick it on the cardboard roll as
shown in the image. To make the top of the tree, we have to make
paper balls and stick it with the tape. Make lots of these and
stick on top of the cardboard roll. Stick it with the help of
lots of cello tape and make it firm.
pieces of newspaper and stick it on the tree with the help of
art attack paste. Cover the whole tree. To make the grass, take
crumbled pieces of newspaper and stick it around the tree to
give it a good effect.
On the area
around it, where the game has to be played, stick sheets of
paper. This area should be smooth as here is where the game
pieces are kept.
Now we need to
do some colouring. Use dark green colour for our tree and brown
for its trunk. This makes our game look so attractive. For the
grass, we will use light green. Once this is done, we can do
some shading to make it look more real. With the help of a black
marker, divide the path into small parts, as shown. Make the eco
symbols like water taps, light bulbs etc inside each part. Now
we have to colour the individual parts, use any two colours of
your choice to colour these. Colour the start point with black
and white as shown. Make sure your whole board is coloured and
the newspaper canít be seen.
Voila!! Your eco-friendly game
is ready! You can punish the player who reached the open tap
spot and give an extra turn to the player, who reached the
closed tap spot. So get set to make your game with your very own
adventures. Hope you have a great fun time playing with your
