My son is in first grade and I think this is my favorite age so far. (Although I seem to say that about every stage.) He is reading, writing, more independent and wants to play board games ALL of the time.
In a span of about 3 months, we went from 1 board game in our house to about 15! The kid is addicted. The games have been a great learning tool and hours of entertainment for those days when it’s been too cold to play outside.
So because of his new found interest in board games, I thought I would make his classmates a Tic Tac Toe boards to go along with the candy I bought. This game is simple to make and the students will enjoy them.
I ordered supplies from Oriental Trading which is my go-to for party and craft supplies. My favorite day is mail day so I can start a new craft.
How to make Valentines Tic Tac Toe
Washi Tape Set
DIY unfinished wood square plaques
DIY unfinished wood circle assortment
- Using washi tape, place 4 strips on plaques to create the game board.
- To make the O’s cut a square from a roll of washi and place on the wood circle. Repeat until you have 5 game pieces.
- To make the X’s use washi tape to make a X and place on wood circle. Repeat until you have 5 game pieces.
It’s that simple! Each game took about 5 minutes to make. But them in a cute Valentines Day bag and let your little one hand them out to friends.
