Bored In Summer Idea #4, make a game out of candy so you can eat your captures when you crush your opponent.
Inspired by some books given to us ( thanks Olivia! ), Lucy wanted to make a game board out of candy and run pieces of candy on top. This was some sort of checkers or chess game. I didn’t get to see the game in action, but the first round was a huge success. Consequently, lunch ran late.
She wove a board with flat sugar bits covered in sour sugar.
Then, had purple sugar on one side and pink sugar on the other. If you killed your opponent, you eat the piece.
She is also following up with a Haribo Tirlibibi round. For those not in the know, Tirlibibi is heavy on liquorice pieces. Should be quite exciting!
