See this altoids tin…soon it will be your favorite game to take with you in your pocket.
Cut out the game boards and just place the ones that you want to use within the tin. You don’t even need to glue them in…they will just stay inserted.
If you want to use backgammon, then glue both of them to the back of the tin…as I did in the picture above.
Cut out the game pieces and glue them to the magnets. For the Dots and Square game…you can just cut out thin slits of magnet to use as the lines.
Above you can see all of the game inserts that come with this craft.
Here are Instructions on How to Play the Following Games:
