The Homemade Spongebob Squarepants Game: Bob's Full of Surprises
By Gail Leino

It is always fun to integrate characters, such as Spongebob Squarepants, into new games to keep your young ones occupied and here you will find a very simple way to entertain your children with an old foam pillow and a handful of sea shells. Having your children help you make this game will only add to everyone's memories of what a great time was had by all.

The creativity of an active imagination can find a game in anything. Often in Spongebob Squarepants show you will see Spongebob pulling hidden things out of his sponge. With this idea in mind, trying to integrate the game concept of memory with Spongebob as a base isn't too far fetched. Items you will need for this project include:

An old foam pillow (yellow if possible)

2 big eyes

Some doll clothes


Small sea shells


Needle and Thread

Using an old foam pillow as your game board, decorate the pillow to look like Spongebob. The face can be made with some big boggle eyes, a nose graphed from the back of the pillow material and sewn onto the front, as well as a big black mouth and two front teeth (possibly made from some felt). Some clothing similar to what Spongebob wears can be obtained from a child's old clothing remnants or some doll clothing. You can either pin them on or sew them. Now that the game board has been assembled, it is time to make the actual game.

Begin by cutting several X marks down into the foam pillow in an orderly fashion. Be sure to cut an even number of slits and be careful not to actually cut any of the material off or to cut too deep as these slits will be used to create rows that will house small sea shell game pieces.

Preparing the game pieces is very easy. Matching shapes if possible, gather enough small sea shells pairs to fill the amount of spaces you have cut into your game board. Using some paint (non-toxic tempra or something similar); color the shells to match their partners. You now have a very innovative game board that resembles both Spongebob and an all-time favorite, the game of memory.
