Introduction: Portable Mini Mancala

 I  had a great time doing this.
It was so fun and easy, and
it only takes about 5-10 minutes.
In this instructable you will be
making a portable mini mancala.
Here's what you need :

ITEMS:

Small Tin
Mini Watercolor paint holder.
string with mini balls on it. (sorry, i dont know the name)
scissors.


Step 1: Watercolor Holder

 The water color holder will be the holes for your "marbles". All you need to do to is remove the watercolor paints.

HERE'S HOW:

Push the plastic up with your finger and pull the water color out with your other fingers.

Step 2: Make the "Marbles"

 In this step you will be making the "marbles". This is quite easy. You will need the scissors and string with balls.

HERE'S HOW:

Take the scissors and cut between the balls so at the end you end up having three balls for each hole.

Step 3: Finish Up #1

 Now for the last steps.Here you will Put the holes into the tin. Its a peice of cake! 

HERE'S HOW: 

Simply Push it in the tin.

Step 4: Finish Up #2

 Now for the final step. In this step you will be placing the marbles in the holes.

(THATS IT)

Step 5: TA-DA!!!

 I hope this was fun for you! Bye!

Step 6: Cool Rules

 Ok. So, i was told to makeup some cool rules because this isn't full scale mancala. (sorry) Here we go.

#1. Make cool "SUPER POWER" cards.
You can use these for special moves.
Everyone draws one at the begining of
the game.Here's some ideas for them.

"Skip 2 Spaces" 
"Start on opponent's side"
"Get 2 Turns"

#2. Color in a hole and call it a "Red Spot".
If you land on this you lose a turn.

#3. Be creative! Make up your own rules! It's fun and cool!
