Well, I have not posted alot lately ... I have been very busy doing stuff, but have not finished alot so far ... :-) But today at least I can show one project ...
After I saw this totally cute tea party game at Melissas blog I tried whether I could buy it in Germany, too. However, I could not find it. So I thought I make my own version of it.
The rules of the game are:
Each person takes turns to spin and collect items. You can collect dessert, a sandwich, cuttlery, a plate, a cup, sugar and fruit. If you spin the bees you loose one item. In order to collect food you have to collect a plate first. To collect sugar you have to collect a cup first. The person who is the first to have collected everything wins. Easy.
This is what I made so far:
Well, I am not very good at drawing ... but I did enjoy it nevertheless! :-) I used water color pens - that's why the colors look rather faint ... It's supposed to be this way! :-)
I made only the spinner (I hope that's what "the thing you spin" is called). At first I thought I am going to make the whole set ... but now I am not too sure anymore. I realized that I could use my daughters play kitchen and play shop stuff instead of making plates, cups, food ... I think she might even like it more when playing with "real" stuff instead of paper cut-outs ... The disadvantage of course is that I can only play this game with her at home ... unless I want to take half a play kitchen and play shop with me ... :-)
So, I don't know yet whether I might end up drawing cups, plates, fruit, cakes ... Maybe I will just decide depending on how much she likes the game. We played it once today and she seemed to have fun ... :-)
