Fathers Day Crafts

Here's a simple, inexpensive, entertaining way to celebrate Fathers Day, or just to play chess.

Print as many of these as you like from the comfort of your home computer.

This chess set is designed exclusively for visitors to prntr.com for your unlimited personal use.

This unique paper set design features full sized, easily weighted, three-dimensional chess pieces, as well as a chess board featuring algebraic notation for recording your games.

This chess set has built-in instructional value, as the pieces are specially designed to be clearly visible from all angles.

The written symbol for each piece is printed on the top.

The pieces are of different heights to indicate their relative values.

To use this material, simply print out the pages shown below on stiff printer paper. 

Right click on each image, and select a SAVE option from your drop-down menu.

This will save the images to your picture file.

From there you can reduce it, enlarge it, and/or set the margins as needed before printing.

Again, stiff paper is recommended.

Easy Instructions:

  1. Print out each of the pages shown below. You will need one copy of the King and Queen, two copies of the Rooks, Knights, and Bishops, and 8 copies of the pawns. 
  2. FOLD the paper along the LIGHTER lines, and CUT the paper along the DARKER lines.
  3. Assemble the pieces as shown in the photo, using scotch tape as needed.
  4. Assembly is fairly self-explanatory and usually takes less than one hour. Use the above photo as a guide.
