Tell Me A Story Game Steps
Step One: We are going to open our Cricut design space and make sure our settings are set to the machine we’re using.( I used my Cricut Joy.) With Cricut Access you have over 1000 images and projects right at your fingertips! This allows you to make these projects and ideas much easier. I headed to Cricut Access and searched for images that were perfect for this project!
Step Two: Prepping our mat. We want to place our wood discs properly and align them with where we placed our image in the design space so that we can center our images! (Tip- you can add small tape to secure your disc to the mat)
Step Three: Replace your blade with your circuit pen of choice! And make sure your settings are set to draw NOT cut! Press make and then set your wood disk aside!
Step Four: Now we have to make the bag to hold our wood disk! Let’s get out our iron on vinyl. Cut out a piece and lay it on your mat.
Step Five: Let’s open our design space back up and use the font of your choice. ( I used DTC Honey Script).
Step Six: *Most Important part* We need to flip our text as we are going to be ironing this on to our bag. (image below for reference)
Step Seven: While this cuts we are going to turn on our Mini Heat Press. And then weed the excess vinyl around out text.
Step Eight: Iron on to drawstring bag & we’re done! You’re ready to play!
How To Play
To play you simply shake the disk in the bag and have your child pick one at a time. They must start a story with the image on the disk! Each player takes turns with one disk and so on, until all disk are used! We love this game as it sparks creativity with endless stories. Being that we made a little bag for it, this makes it a fun portable game you can take anywhere. This is also something that we use in our morning basket to start the day with some fun.
