Portable Placemat Game

Proverbs 31:13 -She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.

With Spring like weather outside this is the perfect activity to take on a picnic, a road trip, camping or to the beach!

I found this idea in one of Martha Stewart's magazines. (But added the compartment for the game pieces)

Find a placemat (mine was 50cents at Big Lots) and use a ruler to draw the checker board on the placemat.
    *Be sure to fold the placemat over so there is enough room to store the game pieces inside.

 Then use paint to color the checkerboard in.

Sew the two ends of the folded part so that the pieces will not fall out. Add velcro on the open side.

The game pieces are cut from foam sheets.

Then you're ready to play! :)

You can also add a tic-tac-toe board to the other side.

Roll it up and take it on a picnic, car ride, camping or to the beach! Have fun!!
