By changing the pictures, you can make a color game, a number game, a letter game, a rhyming game, etc.. You can use Velcro in the sections but we found the cards stayed nicely without it (even for my not-quite-2-year old and were use easy to get out by dumping it upside down.
Here is a page of pictures on different ways to play.
Number – Put numeral or dot cards in the container. On your turn, roll 1 or 2 dice. Put that many pom-poms in the section matching that number. Variation: Take turns putting your color pom-pom in a space (if you put pom-poms in the 3 space, you put 3 or if you put them in the 5, you put 5). Play with a friend and try to fill 3 spaces in a row or play until your run out.
Alpha – Put the desired letters or pictures in the boxes. Take turns placing a pom-pom in the box. Say the animal and letter/sound or come up with another word that starts with hat letter.

I know it isn't that fancy or crafty. You could add name stickers to a cute cover to the lid. My kids liked the see-thru aspect esp. since we made a couple kinds. But I am linking up to Monday Made It. :)
