This cut out and play ‘dominoes-inspired’ game will keep children occupied on their travels.
Instead of numbers, we have used sunny beach-themed images for children to match up. It is thought that dominoes originated in China in the 12th Century. It appeared in Italy in the 18th Century and spread across Europe, to become one of the most popular of household games.
This travel art can be done in:
- Hotel rooms
What you will need:
- Printed Roadtrip Sunshine Dominoes activity sheet
