This has nothing to do with dresses so I guess it will fall under trick cathegory. Since it is impossible to get any Octonaut related items here in Finland you either order them from abroad or make them yourself - as I have done with a few t-shirts and a dress. This time we needed a game. Minea wanted a boardgame to be played with a dice. We found a big piece of cardboard and started printing images from the Net. I did all the cutting but Minea was guite handy with the glue. The game is played like any other boardgame, on the octoalerts the player has to pick up a card and follow the instructions. At one point there is a storm warning (roaring forties) and all the players have to stop there to find out whether to go round the storm once or twice.
The board and the cards need to be lamineted. Here's our Octonauts fan in action. Still in her pj's as it took us all morning to make the game.
Pientä tuotekehittelyä: tein uudet kortit. Pelialusta ja kortit on nyt päällystetty kontaktimuovilla. Peliä on jo pelattu monta kertaa ja hyvin toimii.
R&D: I made new cards for the game. Both the board and the cards are now coated with transparent contact paper. We have played the game a lot and are quite happy with it, especially Minea.
