This project is a learning game made out of recycled items that one may have at home.
Animal matching game that is made for children ages 6-8 years old. Pick an animal, and then place the animal in its correct spot in the game board. Simple but fun matching game that helps children learn spelling and different types of animals at the same time.
Three things we learned was what age groups can do what things, how to design things for a child, and we also learned how many options there are for ways kids can learn. The main thing we learned though was how to use our creativity to make something useful and helpful for a child to learn.
McKensie: This project connects to my family because I live in a home where we do foster care for babies and toddlers so I am very used to finding ways to entertain children with things around the house. Figuring out how to entertain children is not something that I am not used to. I am very used to watching kids and knowing what types of things that they like to do. It also connects to my personal interests because when I grow up I want to work with kids. I love kids so I want my future career to have to do with children and babies so this project was very fun for me.
Kloee: Tried a little harder with making it and coming up with ideas
Something we would have done differently is that we would have taken more time to take the game one step forward. We would have used more stronger material and took it one step further. We would have also made the advertisement neater and more presentable.
McKensie: One thing I am most proud of from this project is my ability to make something for children. I am not a very creative person so I am really proud of the ideas I came up with and how the project turned out even though if I could go back I would have taken it one step further.
Kloee: It isn’t just a fun game it’s a fun learning game
