Back in the day, when we were little, my brother and I used to play Guess Who together. Oh how we loved that game! It was endless hours of fun. Well, in the October issue of Family Fun Magazine there was a quick blurb about customizing a Guess Who game with photos. GREAT IDEA! I decided to take it a step further and draw my people -- my entire family! I think drawings work better because you can really tell eye color, hair color, etc. and nothing is left to "interpretation." But then, since it's family, you can also use facts you know about the person, such as, "Does your person live in the same state as me?"
Anyway, here's what I came up with:
Perhaps everyone looks slightly psychotic with their giant eyes and tiny pupils, but at least you can tell what color their eyes are! :o)
I drew each picture by hand, then scanned them into Photoshop and colored them there. I printed them out on full sheet "sticker project paper," which is like a giant 8 1/2" x 11" sticker label. I then printed two full pages of question marks on each of two different colors cardstock. I peeled and stuck my sheet of sticker people onto the opposite side of the question marks, cut them out, and stuck them into the game! Then I made larger-sized versions of the cards for the "deck," from which you draw a card to determine who you are in the game, and stuck them onto another color of cardstock with question marks on the back. Done!
Here's what the backs of my cards look like.
The funny thing? My brother and his wife used the same idea to make a Guess Who game for my sister for Christmas! Ha ha ha!! He added shirts and a few pets to add another dimension. Shirt color would be another good question to ask about in the game!
Then, of course, I made some more Black Apple Dolls for two of my nieces!
Love those stripey tights!
