I simply painted the circular board cream. Taped off the checkboard and painted the squares red. Last, I added some vinyl for decoration. I need to go grab a lazy susan so that baby can spin.
Now for the parts where my kids come in! The wanted to make the checker pieces so I pulled out a bunch of materials for them to choose from. Buttons are the winner! The funny thing is once one kid decided to use buttons the rest of them had to also.
I love how amazing kids are at crafting when you just leave them alone and let them do their thing.
Anyone up for a game of checkers? They are all taking turns playing right now with the neighbor kids. It seems everyone is very protective of the ones they made.
