- Lay a plain print bandanna on a flat surface over a piece of paper. Fabric markers could bleed through.
- Measure and use pencil to mark a checkerboard grid with 8 rows of 8 squares each.
- Outline grid with black fabric marker pen. (We used Crayola)
- Alternate coloring squares so no square touches another of the same color. Squares do not have to be solid colors. Square can be designed with hearts, seashells, circles, any other icon as long as matching designs are not are side by side horizontally or vertically. (The kids got tired of color after 1 row, so I ended up finishing the rest. They were more excited about making the checkers)
- Roll 1 color combination of Model Magic into 12 balls. Press down to make disc-shaped checkers.
- Roll a different color combination of Model Magic into 12 balls. Press down to make disc-shaped checkers.
- Allow checkers to dry for 24 hours.
(We made most of our checkers differently. We rolled out the Model Magic and used cookie cutters and Play-doh cutters to make our checkers. Hannah chose Stars and Hearts. Max chose Stars and the suggested method above.)
I love how it can be wrapped up for easy storing!
