This game is lots of fun to play – even for kids or adults that say they “can’t draw” will find the game fun to play. It is great for younger children and encourages drawing, counting and taking turns.

One die, a pencil, and a piece of paper

Play

Each player rolls a single six-sided die and either draws one of the following body parts on their beetle or – if that body part has been drawn – pass the die to the next player. The body (1) needs to be drawn first, so the player needs to roll a 1 on the die before any legs, head, tail, wings, or antennae are drawn. Additionally, you would need to roll a two (for the head) before the feelers or eyes could be added.beetle_530x530
