Valentine's Checkers Game

This is a fun way to make a Valentine's Day checker board. I got these little heart pieces from the dollar shop. This would be sweet to create as a team on a date. You paint the squares in from one side, and they paint them in from the other. Meet in the middle, let dry, and play!


Total Time: 90 minutes plus dry time

Yield: 1 board



  1. Depending on how many game pieces you use (and how big the pieces are), it's a good idea to map out how many squares in what sizes you'd like on your board. I drew a rough draft on a piece of scrap paper before I measured the card stock.
  2. I wanted my board to be 8" x 8" (one square inch per game piece) so I marked the paper accordingly, then I cut it with a paper cutter.
  3. Mark the paper at each inch going horizontally, then draw lines straight across.
  4. Mark the paper at each inch going vertically, then draw lines straight down.
  5. Paint every other square black until you have a checkered pattern.
  6. Allow board to dry fully.
  7. Load up the black squares on each side with your heart pieces and enjoy your game.
