I was recently in a board game swap. Upon seeing a ton of peas in a pod related items I asked her if she liked them and this is how she responded "I do love the look of the peas in a pod things.  It is ironic though that I actually HATE peas.  They are disgusting lil vegetables that should not exist unless they are in a form that is decorative or useful (not edible).  LOL I didn't even realize how much I liked them until you asked the question." So the ideas slowly came together and I decided to make her a peas in a pod themed mancala game! The peas are just simple green beads. The pods are for the captured peas. The flowers are the cups and the leaves and the catapillars are for decoration.
On to the pictures!

The mancala board ideas are now unlimted in my head. Expect to see more.
Thank you for looking. Please let me know what you think.

EDIT: In case anyone was wondering this thing took 32 hours to make.
