Homemade Soccer Board Game

This week we did a little woodworking project for homeschool. A scrap board was used for the base, and we made a quick trip to Home Depot for the edging. Finishing nails were used for the "players," along with an old, wooden checker for the "ball."


I was inspired after seeing this:

The "field" is just an 11" x 18" scrap of wood from a shelf we had lying around the garage, so everything was based on that. I simply cut the sides to fit, drew the lines, put in a few nails, and used an old wooden checker for a "ball".

I am impressed with the homemade soccer board game and glad to see the family engaging with the game. As the creator of KickShot, soccer strategy board game, I invite readers to visit the site KickShot.org to learn more about the game. The games's objectives are similar to yours: engage and entertain ane one additional objective to educate.
