Make a game with prompts for different characters and actions to try at home

For this week’s Monday Make, we’re showing you how to create a game that you can use as a fun warm-up or kids’ activity again and again.

The game is made up of a paper dice and card spinner, which you can use to match up different characters and actions to perform.

Download and print off the cube template at the bottom of this page, then watch the video for instructions. We’ve also included a few other character and action ideas that you can use instead of the ones in the video – or you could even make up your own!

Don’t forget us know how you get on by sharing your efforts on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
