The past couple of years I’ve gone to the Operation Christmas Child processing center in Charlotte and I love to see what everyone packs in their boxes.  Last year I saw a cute idea for DIY Checkers that I knew I wanted to share with all of you.  In one of the boxes we found a baggie of red and black Coca-Cola bottle caps and little instructions on how to play Checkers.

I couldn’t find an exact tutorial like I saw at the OCC processing center, but I found a super cute DIY version of it.

If you’re worried about the caps in The Country Chic Cottage’s tutorial being too sharp, swap them out for plastic bottle caps.
