    I saw this craft on pinterest and can’t wait to make these for my boys. I happen to have a laminator so I can use it for dots game which will allow the kids to use dry erase markers. Thanks again and have a blessed day!!

    That’s an awesome idea (the lamination). I’m glad you like the idea.

    This looks really fun (I love altoid tin projects). My kid’s school project is to make something from a re-used/re-cycled item. Your project is perfect! Thank you!
