Chess is very important for children in Green School, they play in pairs whenever they have the time, so we have proposed an activity where children can create their own chess figures.
The activity itself was about making chess pieces by using cardboard, printed images of chess figures (King, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook and Pawn), glue and toothpicks. Merged the elements of crafting and chess simultaneously. Taking into account the ages of the children, the overall structure of the activity ought to be simplified slightly by preparing the necessary materials in advance (cutting the images of chess figures to a standard size, preparing the stand bases for the pieces, making multiple chess boards per pair according to the sizes of the pieces.
The primary objective of the activity was to bring together children with little to extensive knowledge about chess, by combining two entertaining activities (chess and crafting) which can attract both chess and crafting lovers.
