Summer is for the Birds. Literally- since Bird is our last name. Once Summer hits, we are here and there and everywhere. We love traveling to the mountains, the beach, the forest, to the big city and everywhere in between. I wish we were close enough to all those places but luckily, we have family near all those places. So far, we have been to Seattle and Connecticut and will be going to Newport Beach, Rhode Island and then to Ocean City, New Jersey this week. Because we have small children, we need all sorts of entertainment to tame those little ones on planes,airports or even just wherever we are visiting.
(these rocks are a choking hazard and I normally wouldn’t let my nearly 2 yr. old play with them but it was just a cute moment)
I saw this on Pinterest and thought I’d recreate it by eliminating the steps on using tape. This printable checkerboard label just sticks on a gallon Ziplock bag- super easy. And the best part is that it is portable! The kids can take it on flights or even to picnics at the park. Or it could even be taken on a simple but fun date with your babe.
I used little rocks as the checker board pieces and painted them using chalk permanent markers. You could design the rocks however you’d like- x’s and o’s or fun patterns. Then finish the game off by sticking on the coordinating label on the other side of the bag. Now you are ready to roll.
I am pretty sure we have already lost a few pieces and because I just used rocks from outside they are easily replaced. Now to beat my ultra competitive husband!
