Bubby’s Color Racer Board Game Using Elmer’s Tri-Fold Board! You Too Can Get Your #GlueNGlitter On!

Happy baby faces, giggles, and fun are some of my favorites!  I do as much as I can, as often as I can, to make these things happen!  
This week, we decided to get our #GlueNGlitter on by using an Elmer’s Tri-Fold Display Board and whatever other supplies we could find to make a board game for Bubby!  I had to come up with something fun and educational for a 2-year-old (both to make and play with) and I began formulating my plan!  How exciting!  It was agreed!  We would make Bubby’s Color Racer and this would be fun! 
As soon as I had it all planned out B, Bubby, and I headed to our local Walmart.  I loved having my two favorite men in the whole wide world with me, but was a little concerned that I wouldn’t stick to the list (at all as a matter of fact because I am a sucker for the both of them).
I was right (of course I was, I always am)!  We went in with a small list, and came out with a buggy full!
At one point, I found “us” looking at fishing poles.  Not even remotely on the list!  We didn’t get one (that night) but why we were even looking, I have no clue!

 You can see the entire shopping experience here so you can see first-hand the torture insanity joy I get to experience on a daily basis.

Enough of that, let’s get on to the fun stuff!  Let me show you exactly how we got our #GlueNGlitter on making Bubby’s Color Racer.  I bet your little man would love one too (heck Bug loves it, I think she’s played more than he has)
What you’ll need:
The Dice
  • On a paper plate, draw out a 4″ x 3″ cross (as shown to the left) making sure to block each 1″ square in pen or pencil
  • Cut out pattern
  • Fold into cube (don’t worry if it’s not precise, ours sure wasn’t, the tape hides that fabulously)
  • Tape completely with black electrical tape
  • Place different colored dots on each side
 The Board

  • Apply the Elmer’s X-TREME to the entire board
  • Roll the wrapping paper out and press it flatly to the board/glue
  • Let dry then cut off hangover
  • Cover all 4 sides with electrical tape and tape the folds on the papered side of the board
  • Board ready to decorate (insert your own cute kid here)
  • Draw your lane lines with the silver marker
  • Place your dots in the lanes
  • Decorate the sides as you wish (we’re clever but not artistic, so I cut up an Apple Jacks box and a Fruit Snack box…all kinds of cool Cars 2 stuff all over both) and we glued them on with the Elmer’s X-TREME

 Ta-Dah

  • Add Cars
  • Roll the dice
  • Play and HAVE FUN!
