LEGO DUPLO Construction Crane

As many players as you like!

Step 1: Print out the game board onto white card.

Step 2: Place the two sheets side-by-side, matching up the white square in the middle.

Step 3: Use sticky tape to secure the two sheets together.

Step 4: At the party, lay the game board down on a flat surface, and then place the crane on top of the white square. Each child should take a turn to spin the crane. Depending on what color the crane lands on, the spinner must complete an action. You can make these up, or use our guide below.

Step 5: Reward each spinner with a small prize, or round of applause!
