Checkers -- sources
I highly recommend you either prepare a set of checkers like the one illustrated in Lesson 1, or purchase a set of checkers. They are not easy to find. You can check online. Go to and you will find a link to square dance checkers. A bit expensive at $14 a set. Another source for checkers is Suzie Parker . Her ‘small’ checkers are about 5” in size and are made up of plastic, wood and metal (for magnetic purposes). They cost around $15 per set, plus shipping (approx $4.)

Hollly shared her experience making checkers. Here is her message.

Hi Kip, I made these magnetic checkers by using craft magnets from Walmart. They sell round and square ones. Then I used adhesive colored dots also from Walmart, to cover each magnet and trimmed off the excess. Ladies are round and men are square.  I used a Sharpie marker to label each one.  I was able to make 3 sets. I use a 9 by 9 baking pan for my surface to hold them on. I tried using the forum to reply to the post on checkers but was told I’m not logged in which I am or that I don’t have permission to view the page.
