Fun and Easy Tic Tac Toe Kids Travel Game

Fun and Easy Tic Tac Toe Kids Travel Game By: NotSoIdleHands.com

So, I just looked at a calendar this afternoon and realized that summer is closing in….fast!! That means I need to get some things ready for the times we will be in the car for longer than we really want to be trapped in a car together.

I thought these cute muslin bags would make a great bag and board for a tic tac toe game the kiddos can play in the car….or anywhere, really.

You will need:

~ A 4″ x 6″ muslin bag {here} {or here for the kit}

~ 10 3/4″ wooden circles

~ Squeeze bottle of puffy paint

~ Glitter glue {Martha Stewart Brand worked very well}

Start by slipping a piece of scrap paper inside to keep the paint from going through to the other side.

Since these are great for stamping on, I figured it should be just as easy to use fabric paint on too. I decided to use puffy paint since it’s thicker {so it wouldn’t bleed} and it comes in this handy squeeze bottle with a fine tip to make things easy to draw the lines.

Then, I took pink and blue glitter glue {again with the easy squeeze bottle and fine tips} and made X’s & O’s on the circles. I thought it would be fun to make pink on one side and blue on the other, so the kiddos can trade off colors easier.

I made 5 of each in case 1 or 2 tiny circles got away or got wedged between the car seats during a long drive.

Ta~da! Super cute and easy to grab for a car trip {or plane, or train….or even to take along to a restaurant}

All you have to do is toss the X’s & O’s into the bag and go…

You can get the bags here……or even get the bags and circles together in a kit here!!

These make GREAT gifts too….I’ve already had a few requests from the girls’ friends.

Have fun!!
