Normally designated for children that find themselves bored on rainy Saturdays, this geek found that those cool and colorful tubes that you melt into arts-n-crafts-work in the oven work just as well as gamer-themed coasters. Better on the coffee table than on the XBox, right?
Do you remember playing with these kits when you were younger? (Always with adult supervision, we're sure!) Well bust them out again, because making your own XBox "Red Ring of Death" coasters couldn't be easier. Just lay out the simple pattern and get to baking. A set of four features the ring moving around the four 'player' lights.
Just like the 'Red Ring' pumpkin, only this one you can keep out year-round.
