Pin the Tail on the Donkey Game
What you need to have on
X-acto knife and
Small piece of
aluminum foil to use as "glue pot"
quick-dry glue. Nicole sells a great one. White
craft glue takes too long to dry and is messy.
Glue stick will work, but becomes brittle and
pops loose after time.
You get a much better
cut than with cardboard and your blade will last
so much longer.
Cut out all pieces for both games. Use the
straight edge ruler to press against fold lines.
This will give you clean straight creases. Fold at
all fold lines on all pieces.
Note: Use the blade
tool to cut the little tight spots such as those on
the donkey tails.
Take the planchette
storage box piece and place a layer of glue to the

Use tweezers to position and glue the three black
beads to the under side of the planchette. These act
7. Take the
folded box top. Glue the tiny four tabs in place.
Glue down the lining panels found on each side of
the box top. Use tweezers to squeeze the glued fold
line. This makes the edges thin and uniform so that
the top will fit on the bottom. Repeat for both
boxes' tops and bottoms.
Fold the Ouija board in half and glue blank sides
Glue beads to underside of board or balsa wood
strips to make it look more realistic.
