I have been working on a game for my son's 1st grade teacher. She had this game already, but it needed a little face-lift if you will. Her's were #10 cans with faded, ripping butcher paper wrapped around which had hand written labels of what the cans were. I wanted her to have something a little more fabulous!
The teacher already had this game, but I found it via pinterest and so I thought I would give you the link because she does a great job of describing how to play the game.
Now how I made mine!
|I got 4 of these containers at the dollar store. I liked them because not only do the lids screw on, but the plastic is rough and so I thought the spray paint may adhere well to it. (It did adhere great by the way!)|
|I taped the top part where the lid screws on and put some newspaper to keep the paint from getting inside. I also bought spray paint for plastic.|
|I used 4 different colors. They seemed to dry very quickly.|
|I then proceeded to type out the 200 sight words. I coordinated each set of 50 with their matching container color- just in case they get mixed up. Then I laminated and cut.|
|Red had the 1st 50 sight words.|
|Blue- 2nd 50.|
|Yellow- 3rd 50.|
|And you guessed it, green- 4th 50.|
|That's BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!|
