Original Game

Part of the Projects at Home Collection

Create a treasure hunt in your house, your yard, your neighborhood, or a park or forest, for family members or friends.

To get started with this project, check out these models:


  1. There are many formats for games, such as board games, card games, sports games, and video or online games that you can create.
  2. Think about games that you like to play, and create a new version.
  3. It can be hard to get the rules for your game right on your first try. It may be too easy to win, too hard to win, or too confusing to follow. Try out your game yourself or with family or friends and adjust the rules until they feel right to keep the game interesting and fair.

Working on Projects at Home is different than working in school.
We do not give you lessons or directions.
We give you models of each project to look at carefully, and then you decide how to adopt the project for your interests, skills, materials, time, and any new ideas you have.
Your project does not have to look like the models—it can be inspired by the models.
If you are proud of what you created, we encourage you to share it online with the hashtag: #ProjectsAtHome.
