To play connect 4 on line click
Print off or copy template for connect 4 base
Pierce holes in the crosses on the template ....
so it looks like this, with 14 holes.
Fold along the lines as in the photo above.
Glue (or sellotape) as above.
The holes should now be aligned one above the other.
Push 7 drinking straws through the holes.
Glue some coloured paper into a roll (about half an inch in diameter).
Cut and allow to dry.
Cut into equal pieces about three quarters of an inch in length. (you will need twenty one pieces of each colour)
YOU ARE NOW READY TO PLAY CONNECT 4.
Think of alternatives for the pieces. (Maybe coloured tubular pasta, for example).
