    • Our friends at the Pitt Rivers Museum have made this fun make and do so you can make your very own Mancala game.

      The game is believed to have been invented by the Ancient Egyptians. It spread from here around the world and versions of it are still popular in Asia and Africa today, although confusingly it has lots of different names.

      Follow this link to a printable PDF and follow the instructions to make your very own version of the game. Why not add some cool designs and send us a photo of your creation to
