This super simple Football Inspired Checker Board tutorial will get your non game day loving kiddos excited about game day.
Today I’ll show you a fun craft I made especially for my daughter who loves candy but not football. My Football Inspired DIY Checker Board is unique because it’s played with candy. Incorporating candy is a fun way to get non football fans involved at game time.
To create the board I used a few simple crafts items and all of the orange and green colored candies from a bag of small candies.
- brown felt 9″x12″
- paint pen (white)
- permanent marker (black)
- washi tape (green & white)
- paint canvas (8×10)
- no-sew velcro dots for fabric
- football party confetti
- hot glue gun
When it comes to homegating, I love incorporating something new and fun for the entire family. Sometimes I cook a fun dish my husband loves or plan a fun activity.
Taking the classic game of checkers and introducing candy into the mix adds a colorful and yummy surprise.
