Dime Store Games: Chain Toy

Rudolph's antlers never had so many different looks. The only skill this game requires is shaking the box to get the chain to lie just as you want.

steps

  1. Use reindeer image, enlarged to fit box of choice, to trace a circular background shape onto light cardboard; cut out with utility knife.

  2. At tips of antlers, punch two small holes with a hole punch. Insert a short chain -- long enough to allow antler shapes to form -- and tape ends onto back of cardboard disk. Fit in box.
