There are games. And there are crafts. But when you put the two together you’ve got a fun-filled two-fer that’ll burn through an afternoon like your Little burns through snacks. Scroll through to find games you can make and play in one sitting.

Create & Cast

Cutting, coloring and paperclips are the trick to making this math game designed by Sarah at Little Bins for Little Hands. We love it because there are so many ways to play with these fishies once they’re created. Match numbers, letters, colors or just let your little fisherman see how many he can reel in. Get details so you can play all day before you dive in on this DIY project.
