Three in a row - scrappy game for kids (and adults...)

One of the local scrapper dragged many of us to make a fun game for the long 'Stay at Home' period, and it became a kind of 'pandemic' at the local scrppy community :).
To make it, all you need is a chipboard, a cardstock and some beautiful patterned papers (we all have it, right?). I actually used leftovers polka dots papers by Echo Park.
I skipped the stage of adhering the pp to a black cardstock, and used only black chipboard.
You can find the tutorial right HERE.
My own boys are too grown up to play with this game, but I made it for a neighbor, who is a nurse with two young kids. I will give it to her, along with one my new 'Thank you' cards, to show my appreciation to her, being in the front line of the battle against the Corona Virus.
It's a game of 3X3 cards, and you need to match them by the half circles.

This is how it looks, when the cards are all mixed up:

And this is how it looks after you solve the riddle:

From the leftovers, I made a smaller version, only 2X2 cards, and I already gave it to another neighbor, a very good friend of mine, who is staying at home with her little one, and it can give her some quite time...
Fetured at Liitle Red Wagon

It is so simple to make it, and so enjoying. You can make it with the kids and then let them play with it.

It goes for the 'Use your leftovers' challenge at Little Red Wagon.
The box for the cards goes for the 'More than one score' challenge at Scor-Pal.

Stay at home, stay safe!
Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much.

What a great idea! I've seen this type of puzzle at the store, but never thought to make my own. You did a super job! Thanks for joining us at the Scor-Pal More Than One Score Challenge!
