Tic Tac Toe

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?
