This is what I have spent the last 5 hours working on...

I made 20 Mancala boards. Tomorrow, each family in the church will be taking one home.

They are actually really easy to make. Just 2 egg cartons (plastic is best) and some tape, and some rocks. You need 2 lids and 1 insert (with the egg cups).
Step 1. Cut 1 lid in half
Step 2. Put egg cup insert inside uncut lid
Step 3. Turn upside down and tape cut lid to each end, 2 cups in (so you have a bowl at the end of each side)
Step 4. Add 4 rocks per cup
Step 5. Enjoy!!

It took me a little bit longer cause I made boxes to go with each one.

I hope the kids enjoy them with their families!!


  1. I am sure they will. The kids are all excited. Pug called and talked to Oma about Germany.
    Josh has decided to talk about Gayana with Q so that it was a little easier... they have lots to read! See you soon.

  2. I liked how it turned out today.

    I thought the game was cool and I commented to someone about the work that went into it - impressed by the boxes. Very "Pro". Good job once again my dear! You again... rock.

  3. That's a great idea. Homemade gifts are best I say.

  4. They look good. I'm sure the kids loved them. Good job!
