Valentines Day heart boxes*
*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!
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.
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!
