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.

Jen from Mama Papa Bubba has tons of tips and ideas you can share with your budding builder before she breaks ground on this project. When she’s done, it’s time to run the maze against the clock or in head-to-head competition with her sib. Ready, set, roll!
