Thanks to Sharon for sharing this game and templates with us!
- Use Card stock. Copy four or more sets of animal tokens to make "dice". Cut out the animal squares and glue onto wood cubes. For extra durability, spray dice with clear acrylic coating (Krylon spray and wood cubes available at Michael's craft store. Bulk cubes available online - search for "wood turnings". One good place is http://www.woodparts.biz/).
- Use card stock. Copy one ark and at least one set of animal tokens for each child. For added durability, laminate ark and tokens. Cut tokens apart. Use one or more instruction cards.
- To play game: Each child needs a game card. Children take turns rolling the dice, trying to get pairs of animals. When they get a pair, they put a token matching that animal onto their ark.
Game difficulty can be varied by using fewer dice or different number of rolls per turn. For example, with five dice, it is easy to get a pair every roll or two. With three dice and three rolls, players will not get a pair every turn.
