Entertain the kids with this DIY Take along game of tic tac toe! It is a fun kids activity that will keep kids happy even on long road trips.
Here is what you need to make your very own take along game of Emotional Tic Tac Toe:
- 8 Wine Corks
- Acrylic Paint
- Black Sharpie
- Sewing thread
Start by painting the corks white to cover the graphics and leave aside to dry.
Then with a pencil lightly draw the outline of the face on each cork and use this line as a guide for painting outside with the main colors. You need to paint four corks in one color and the balance in another contrasting color – the opposition!!
When dry the kids will really enjoy adding the character to each cork, which one is happy, grumpy and confused?
Now to play you can simply have a sheet of paper and some pencils to make the tic tac toe grid or if you want something more permanent that the kids can come and go to, again and again and again, just cut a piece of craft felt into a square and sew on some quick grid lines with zig-zag stitching. Easy, even for someone who can only sew in straight lines like myself!!! I’ll get there…. eventually!! More on www.skiptomylou.com
