Step 1: Getting Started
In the spirit of Valentine’s season I added hearts and circle game pieces and created the game in red and pink. But you could easily adapt this pattern to be used for different holidays or occasions, even in favorite team colors! (I used a Zip-lock bag to store our finished game to keep in the car but a cute container would be fun too.)
The finished game board measures about 8” x 8.5”.
