I developed this game for a DIY Upcycled Gifting workshop. I believe my niece and nephew, children of Amanda, were the beta testers.
Recycled/Reused Canisters with magnetic base and lid
Old Board Game pieces
Colored printing paper
Print the templates below (click, right click, save) on the colored printing paper. Cut out the circles.
Adhere magnets to game pieces. Game pieces can either be all one color, or different colors for multiple players.
Templates should fit snugly at the base of the canister. The canister is the travel case for the game, as well as the gaming table.
Choose a template. Place template on metallic side of canister.
When player sees Letters, Numbers or Shapes outside, while riding in the car, cover the item with a game piece.
When all items are covered, HURRAY! You won!
Choose a new template, repeat.
You may gift each player in the family with their own complete canister. This allows for easier maneuvering of the pieces while riding in a car. Players can set unique rules based on the ages of the players and the route of choice.
The first player to cover their board wins. (One player could be using Letters, while another is playing with Shapes)
Cooperative effort: race against the clock or the mile markers to cover as many items together.
