It is a neat little chest to keep things in. But it also has a secret. Only you know the secret to opening it. Fun! I give you the template to make it. Just some foamboard and a hot glue gun! Make a Wizard's Puzzle Box



India - The Paper Game

This game is a bit different and a whole lot of fun. Instead of rolling dice we use the centuries old technique of flicking a chip just like the game of Carrom that they play in India. Fun adventure where you have to collect the ancient dagger and deliver it to the Taj Mahal. Print and play "India" here





Make a Light Box

A light box is a wonderful little thing. You can use it for tracing, drawing, and even reading x-rays. But they are very expensive to purchase. I have a nice tutorial here that shows you how to make a great one very cheap. It uses a string of LED's as the light source. How to make a light box
