FF: Mancala

egg carton mancala

After a very full day, I was “too pooped to pop,” but I had enough umph left in me to play a few rounds of mancala with Pete.

Mancala is a simple game that is so fun to play with both children and adults, and it becomes a game of strategy the more you play it. It’s a game like chess that is both good for your mind and fun for your spirit.

You can buy wooden mancala games for less than $10 at stores like Target and Wal-Mart, or you can make one out of an egg carton, like this clever mother did! (Dried beans, pasta, buttons, or pebbles also work.)

I am a huge fan of simple ways to have fun, especially for Friday nights like tonight.

Happy Playing,

Liz 🙂
