Heart Checkers!

PIC_0472This idea came about because I found a really fun item on major clearance / discount price after Valentines Day.

Supplies:  

Cardboard

Crayons

Valentines Day heart boxes*

PIC_0474*I bought three packages of them on clearance. But I have seen them pretty frequently during the holiday shopping at different stores like dollar tree or most major retail places. Plus, heart tokens can also be made out of cardboard!

Directions:

I just used a long piece of cardboard to drawl on lines onto another piece of cardboard. I found the center and worked my way out from there making eight rows by eight rows.

PIC_0494 Then I used a crayon to color in every other square to make a checkers board.

I divided the hearts into two piles with assistance from my daughters. It became team red verses team pink. I did have my girls take off the bottoms to use those only when someone earned a king.

Its not the best looking board ever. However, it was a fun project to do and it cost us under 2 dollars to make!

I do plan to revisit the colors/ decorations on this board in the future when we get around to painting next!
