  4. On the diamond, cut out 3 very small squares and glue them to the corners where 1st, 2nd, and 3rd base would be. Cut out another piece in the shape of home plate and glue it in place as shown in photo.
  5. Write on the bases 1,2,3, and H for home.
  6. For game pieces, punch out 5 holes from the orange and yellow paper. For the score pieces punch out 8 holes from red paper.Use the Mod Podge to glue to the small wooden circles. Once it is dry add a top coat. Cut out small pieces of magnet and glue to the back of circles.
  7. Cut out squares of paper to cover each side of game die. Glue and allow to dry. Once it is dry write the letters "s" for single, "d" for double, "t" for triple and "o" for out.

To play the game: Roll the die and follow the letters' instructions. If you have a single, then you move to first base and so on. When you get 3 "o's", you're out and then it's the next player's turn.
