Daddy project!

My husband thought it would be a good idea to teach Abby (now 5) to play checkers.  She loves games and will actually sit and play with you for a while.  As much as it killed him to purchase (for a whole $5) a set from a store-he did.  His motto always being -why buy what you can build.   And as luck would have it the game set he bought had missing pieces!!  I know there a few of you out there that can feel my pain and know I will never hear the end of it.  So one night while at work a building session happened in our basement!

These first two pics have nothing to do with the checker board itself-it just kept them busy while he worked on the board.

Made with leftover wood and paint!


  1. Wnat a fabulous project! Great job dad and girlies!

  2. That sure surpasses the standard folded cardboard gameboard.

  3. Wow! This great. I love the intense look on Liv's face.

  4. Dave rules. Wait-- Joe rules too. I forgot for a second.
