You know who uses my phone almost more than I do? My kids. To play games. V recently found Where’s My Water and has been obsessed with it. While I can’t buy or make a real version, I can make some of the other games they like. Tic tac toe being one of them. I actually got the idea when I walked through Michael’s wooden craft department and saw two for 99 cents letters.
A scrap of 1/8 inch craft plywood (excess from this silhouette art) to make the base and a piece of 3/8 inch square trim from Home Depot.
With the front already stained, I pre painted the square trim before using wood glue to attach it along the outer edges. Then I painted both sides of the letters and taped off the grid to paint.
I found a few wooden nickels in my craft stash so I glued those to the bottom to act as feet.
We’ve already had a few tic tac toe lessons and tournaments.
V is learning to play checkers so I want a cute checker board, too. I’m thinking the new table base would make a great game spot, so I filled a few bowls with game pieces and metal puzzles.
Now to get that top cut and ready. What are your family’s favorite games?
