I apologise for the lack of posts lately folks, but I’ve been busying myself with designing planner printables for my new Etsy store. Not only that, but I’ve also been gardening. Yes, gardening. I am bad at gardening. My thumb is more red than green. My knowledge of gardening consists of: plant goes into dirt, water goes on plant. So I’ve started with aloe veras. I’ve been told they’re very easy and don’t require much maintenance at all. That being said, I’ve had succulents and cacti die on me before!
I’ve created 5 super fun paper mini games you can print and cut out to play if you’re traveling, or even if you’re simply bored at home. The games on this printable are: Categories, Boxes, Battleship, Tic-Tac-Toe, and Paper Golf.
If you need a refresher on the rules, here they are:
Paper Golf // Each person starts on the golf ball. With their eyes closed they must draw a line to where they think the hole is. Keep taking turns until the first person reaches the hole.
Tic-Tac-Toe // One person is the ‘O’. The other person is the ‘X’. Taking turns, you draw your ‘O’ or ‘X’ in the spaces in the grid. The first person to make 3 respective ‘Os’ or ‘Xs’ in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row wins.
Categories // Pick any letter in the alphabet. Each person runs through the list trying to name something in each category starting with that letter. This can run on a timer or simply stop when the first person has finished. You get 1 point for each original answer. Most points wins.
Battleship // Each player must arrange the ships in places on the grid. Once your ships are arranged, each player takes turns trying to ‘shoot’ the other person’s ships down. Call out the squares using the letters and numbers (e.g. A1, B6 etc). Once all the squares for that ship has been called out, that ship has sunk. First person to sink all of their opponent’s ships wins.
Boxes // Each person takes turns drawing a line from one dot to another vertically or horizontally. The goal is to make as many squares/boxes as you can. When you make a box, you get a free turn.
I hope you enjoy playing with these mini paper games!
