How many times have we had family gatherings where everyone is sitting in the same place but have all of our noses buried in a gadget? We may be letting precious bonding time get away by virtually ignoring each other. So let's do something to while away the time in a creative way and build treasured memories!
Instead of spending at least P1.000 on a new board game, why not make one yourself? Doing the project together will also be a crafty challenge that everyone can participate in!
The game will have you coming up with some wacky looking faces. You don't have to stick to the eyes, noses and ears we have made, you can add your own!
Once you've played this game, you can also print another set of face parts and use these to decorate your face!
Big metal can - We used a can of coffee with a space for 6.5 inch height x 19 inch width label.
Thin magnet sheets or little magnet pieces
Glue gun - or white glue should be ok.
Colorful paper - cartolina is big enough to cover the can - and you can choose whichever colors you like. You can also download the gameboard background we made here (PNG file).
White Marker - if you don't have this, you can just use colorful paper to delineate the face borders.
Foam or Cardboard - If you have magnet sheets on hand, you can paste the face parts on to the magnet sheets themselves so you don't have to get the foam/cardboard.
Face Parts -
Start with a clean can. Measure the size of the surface so you know how much paper you need to cut.
Paste the colorful paper onto your can using white glue or the glue gun.
Cut out small ovals of different colors and paste to the sides of the labels and then outline with white marker. You can leave out the outlines if you can't find the white markers.
Download the face parts file and print out.
Cut out the face parts and attach to foam or cardboard to make them sturdier. If you have magnet sheets, attach them directly on to the sheets and then neatly cut around the face parts to form the game pieces.
Attach the face parts to small magnets if magnet sheets are not available. Now you are ready to play!
- Put all the game parts on top of the can. People can look at the parts they like and try to memorise where they're at.
- Everybody blindfold themselves. No cheating.
- Everyone puts their hand on the can and turn it around clockwise for a duration of 5 seconds. Take care not to let the parts fall off at the top. If they fall, it will be part of the game to hunt for them!
- Once the can stops, people can get the face parts they want and stick on to the can!
- When everyone is done, you can all remove your blindfolds and see what happened to the face you made!
You don't have to do this game all together as well. You can do it one at a time. Be sure to take photos of the nicest faces done!
