This fun pizza game is not only easy to play, it is also easy to make. Gather all of the family together and give it a try. Using these directions, you will make enough playing pieces for 4 people to play. If you have more people, simply cut out more pieces.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

  • 4 Brown Pieces of Felt
  • 4 Red Pieces of Felt
  • 4 Yellow Pieces of Felt
  • Felt - other colors as desired
  • Unused Pizza Box (or a shoe box, etc)
  • A Die
  • Scissors

Cut a large circle out of each piece of brown felt. This will be your "pizza crust". Cut circles out of the red felt that are about 1-inch smaller than your brown circles. This will be your "pizza sauce". Cut 4 even smaller circles out of the yellow felt to be the "pizza cheese". You will need to use different colored felt to cut out other pizza toppings. You will need 4 sets of 3 other toppings; such as 4 sets of green peppers, 4 sets of black olives, and 4 sets of pepperoni. Choose whatever toppings you like.

Use an unused pizza box, or other box, to store your game pieces and die. On the lid of the box, or in another convenient spot, write down each number on the die and a pizza part that goes with it. Like this:

  1. = Pizza Crust
  2. = Pizza Sauce
  3. = Pizza Cheese
  4. = Pepperoni (or other topping of choice)
  5. = Green Peppers (or other topping of choice)
  6. = Black Olives (or other topping of choice)

Numbers 1 thru 3 must be the crust, sauce, and cheese in that order; but numbers 4 thru 6 can be whatever toppings you choose.

Once all your pizza pieces are cut and your box is prepared, you can play the game! This game is played like 'Cootie' if you are familiar with that game. The object of the game is to roll the die and create a pizza. Everyone starts with nothing. All players take turns rolling the die, when someone rolls a 1 they get to take a pizza crust piece. Once a person has their crust, they then need to roll a 2 and put the sauce on the pizza. Then they need to roll a 3 to get the cheese for their pizza. The rest of the numbers and pizza parts can be acquired in any order. The first person to finish making a pizza with all the toppings wins the game!

NOTE: Instead of using felt for your pizza pieces, you could use magazine pictures, construction paper, scrap material, wallpaper samples, or anything else you can find lying around that are appropriate colors for your pizza toppings.
