A Game for Teaching Left and Right
SAME GREAT GAME, NEWLY DESIGNED!!
My eldest is always asking, “Which way is right?” or “Which way is left?” There are some great “tricks” out there, but they don’t seem to be working. I really needed a game we could play that would be fun AND teach him left and right. Here is what I came up with.

Preparing the Game
Print the templates.
Cut out the dogs and bones.
Cut the path template along the dotted lines and assemble as shown below.
Trace and cut out your child’s hands. Label one “right” and one “left.”
Print the playing cards and the “WOOF” paper back to back, then cut them out. Stack them face down for play.
Each player chooses one dog playing piece and places it on any space along the path.
Place a bone on all the other spaces.
Stack the cards face down.
Place the hands above the board to “show” left and “right.”
Player 1 picks a card and does as it says. If the player lands on a space with a bone, he takes it. If there is no bone, then he does nothing. Then player 2 takes a turn. Add new bones to the board as you go if desired for longer playtime.
The game continues this way until all the bones are cleared from the board.
If requested, the “winner” has the most bones at the end of the game.
