UPDATE..  The cribbage boards have been received by the teacher and here are a couple photos he sent.

Third Grade class Pillsbury Elementary School in Minneapolis, MN



After school group called GISE (Guys In Science & Engineering).



I was contacted by a school teacher at Pillsbury Elementary in Minnesota.  He wanted to teach his students to play cribbage to improve their math skills.  He asked for rejects or old spare cribbage boards.  I decided I wanted to make them from scratch for him and the kids he will teach to play cribbage, so I created 14 new boards, each with custom pegs and a deck of cards.

These boards are 16 inches long by 4 inches wide and will have the storage slot on back for the custom metal pegs which will go out with them.

 The boards have the school logo lasered on one end, donated by Northern Lights Engraving of Columbia Falls.
