The question was what to do and how difficult would it be to create something from scratch?
I needed some inspiration. I thought I'd have a look at what they had and go from there. In less than 10 minutes I had created a brand new game! Snap! Well OK it's not brand new, we all know how to play Snap! but what I liked was the ready made templates and I could choose the pictures. I could just use animals that Bear recognised. Those that he could say the name or do the sound. I had no idea if this would be too difficult for him but I pressed on. I thought he could just look at the pictures and make the noises.
|Bear playing Snap! Made with Twinkl Create|
It took four easy steps to create and then print them out onto A4 sized card I had left over from another project. Hey Presto, 12 double sided cards.
|Lots of templates are available. I chose cards|
I used a different design on the front to the back and printed two sheets exactly the same so I ended up with 12 cards, two of each picture. I found it very easy to add text to each card.
Bear just loved looking at the cards. Moving them from hand to hand. He liked finding the animals and found two owls. Snap!
