Chess Club

We've started a chess club here and it is already very popular.  I decided to sidestep the whole chess board problem by making chess sets out of paper.  The whole thing is really easy and not having to worry about missing pieces or ruined boards is a big bonus.

The kids learned about the pieces last week and played pawn chess.  This week they will learn about checks and mates.  This is going to become my favorite club, I can tell...
