Swimmer and the Shark - Child Crafted Games


D (age 9) decided to entertain himself today, by putting together a craft/game to play with his sisters.  He glued a piece of blue construction paper to a thin piece of cardboard...


...and cut out a stick figure swimmer from more paper, and a shark fin from cardboard...


...attaching a paper clip to the bottom of each...


...so they could be moved around from underneath the paper with fridge magnets.


The object of the game then, was for the player controlling the swimmer to avoid the shark without being driven off the side of the paper.


It's great to be a homeschooler.
