Homemade Dominoes Kids’ Craft and Game DIY

I still have a fondness for dominoes to this day. As you may know, if you have been around this blog for very long, the kids' crafts that I like the most are those that lead to therapeutic play once completed. Dominoes are a game that has so many variations, it can be played by children and adults of all ages and skill levels. Even preschoolers can learn to match numbers or colors...and what a fun way to learn those skills. What makes this craft so special is that when it is completed it brings the whole family together. And what could really be more important than that?

Fill Your Bag and craft along!

"What is this 'bag' she keeps talking about?" Well, I am so glad you asked...Have you ever started to make a recipe from your favorite cooking show just to realize half way into making dinner that you are missing a key ingredient? I hate that feeling, and I don't want that to happen to you while crafting here with me. My goal is to make creating with your kids fun and do-able! That is why EVERY craft on this site can be completed from the same master list of basic craft supplies that fit into one bag. Check out the "Fill Your Bag" page to learn more. You do not need a PhD in craftology, and your kids do not need to be the next Rembrandt. Let's just dig in, get our hands a little dirty, learn a lot and have a blast doing it together!
