Just popping in today to share links to a couple kid-craft articles I’ve done recently for CRAFT.
The first of which is a tutorial for this life-size board game. We had a blast putting this together and playing with it. I got an awesome deal on carpet squares at SCRAP, and everything else (big dice, big game cards) was made from cheap and readily-available materials. K’s sister Jen was kind enough to round me up a couple adorable boys (Logan and Charles, age 7) to play.
(The carpet squares have since been appropriated by Pushkin, who uses them for regal sitting, not gaming.)
Then, I did a piece on zine-making for kids of all ages. It includes some interesting zine projects you can do with young children, grade schoolers, and middle schoolers. I loves me some indie publishing, and to my mind, it’s never too early to get kids making media.
So, there you go. Enjoy!
