On September 10, we hosted a game jam where kids were invited to design and create a game using these simple materials: two dice, four marbles, a piece of string, four paper cups, a bunch of cork “game pieces” of varying sizes, colored paper cards, round colored stickers, and a piece of posterboard. In addition, kids could use any of the crayons, colored pencils, markers, tape, glue, scissors, etc. that were there.

Here’s a video that shows what one team made.

Here are some pictures of games that others made.
