Where will your imagination take you?! What story can you tell with your tiles? Create your own world by drawing and coloring the grid sheet and then cutting individual tiles. Mix the tiles to form new and different combinations. Add your own original tiles using scrap paper. 


  • Paper, chipboard or cardboard (the thicker, the better)

  • Pencil or pen

  • Colored markers or crayons

  • Scissors


  1. Draw a 2"x2" grid in pencil on your sheet of paper.

  2. Within the grid, draw elements in your world. See our examples for inspiration!

  3. Color the tiles.

  4. Cut the tiles into 2"x2" squares.

  5. Arrange and re-arrange the tiles, mixing them form new and different combinations. 


Tiles make great games too. Make doubles of each tile for a game of Concentration. Check out these other tile game favorites:
