Since it’s December and almost Christmas I thought a fun activity would be to create a Tic Tac Toe game. I sent my younger boys outside to collect some sticks in order to made a nature Tic Tac Toe board. Once the sticks were brought in I tied them together with some string that we had.
I was having a hard time getting the sticks to stay still so Princess offered to help me get the string tied securely. Then she used a lighter to burn the ends after tying knots at each crosspoint.
Last year I picked up a cute pack of wooden reindeer from Target on clearance that I held back for this year. I wanted the boys to have some fun materials for this season so I just opened the wooden reindeer this week for the Reindeer Preschool Printable Pack and for this Tic Tac Toe game.
My kids enjoy a simple game of Tic Tac Toe and all it’s competitiveness that it brings out. I love seeing my children have something fun and simple that they can do together. So if you are looking for a quick way to entertain your children this Holiday Season then make a Tic Tac Toe board and use some small objects for your game pieces. You could use small cookie cutters, tiny ornaments or LEGO minifigures…
Do your children enjoy simple games like Tic Tac Toe? Maybe they would enjoy a good game of marbles or jacks!
