DIY Tic-Tac-Toe Game that’s cute and fun!

When we go out to restaurants, one of the things we almost always do with the boys while we wait is play none other than…tic-tac-toe! But, I got to thinking. Why only play it when we are out?! Why not bring it to our HOME in a reusable form?!

This DIY Tic-Tac-Toe game is cute and functional and will make it easy for you to have instant fun at home with your kids!

Here is what you will need: 

  1.  12×12 chipboard from Hobby Lobby (you could also use a 12×12 piece of wood)
  2.  12×12 sheet of scrapbook paper in your choice of pattern
  3.  Mod podge
  4.  Burlap tape (mine is from Walmart, but you could also use cute Washi tape for this)
  5.  9 Wood slices (mine came from Hobby Lobby)
  6.  Sharpie DIY Tic-Tac-Toe game supplies needed

That’s it! It’s as easy as X and O…haha! So easy that I let my youngest son do this one with me on FB Live. You can see that here, and he even tells some pretty cute jokes at the end 🙂

I mod podged the scrapbook paper on then used my burlap tape to make the tic tac toe shape. We did X’s and O’s in sharpie and made them reversible so we were sure we had plenty to pick from before the game ended. DIY Tic-Tac-Toe game with wood slice x and o
