For your Travel Checkers You will Need:
- A set of checkers from the dollar store
- button size magnets
- hot glue
- the printable checkerboard found at the end of the post
- a way to laminate
- a binder pouch to keep the checkers in
- a dollar store cookie sheet
As with all of the other posts in our Travel with Kids series, this game is designed to be played on a dollar store cookie sheet. I spray painted mine turquoise and added glitter, but it isn’t necessary. Print the checkerboard on cardstock and then laminate for extra durability. I laminate everything at home with this laminator and I absolutely love it! So easy.
Hot glue a magnet on the king side of each of the checker pieces. The magnets should be strong enough to let you flip them over magnet side up if you need a king piece.
How do you keep your kids busy without electronics on road trips?
