Step 1:

First, cut out an 8 inch by 8 inch piece of cardboard 

Step 2: Tiles

Second, draw out the chess board tiles and each square should be around 1 sq, inch and have 64 of them. Also, color them in, I used a black marker and white out for the coloring

Step 3: Making the Pieces

Cut out an 8 inch by 4 inch cardboard and cut it in half on half would be white pieces and the other would be black. You need 8 pawns, 2 rooks, 2 knights, 2 bishops, 1 queen, and 1 king for the white and do the same thing for black. REMEMBER TO CUSTOMIZE THE WHITE AND THE BLACK TO RECOGNIZE WHICH IS WHITE AND WHICH IS BLACK. I used initials for it.
