DIY Tic Tac Toe Game {Create Memories with Kids}

Hi Friends! I’m Jessica and I blog over at Two Shades of Pink. I love to share simple crafts for holidays, parties, and pretty much anything to celebrate.  I am a big lover of fabric and yarn so I use it. A lot.  Like even…today!  YAY!

So let’s talk about this easy DIY Tic Tac Toe game.  The game pieces…you guessed it….are pom poms.
I found this fun yarn that looks like there are little confetti dots on the fibers.
My two daughters love playing tic tac toe.  And they are good!  But we usually are doing it on paper and we run out of room.  So I came up with a quick project to make our own set.
The whole set consists of a wrapped Pringles can, 10 pom poms and 4 wood dowels.

Step 1.  I used a pom pom maker to make the pom poms. If you don’t have one,  and you are unsure how to make one, I teach you how to do it here.

Step 2. Admire your cute pom pom and make 10 total (I made 5 blue, 5 green).

Step 3. Use 4 wooden dowels.  I cut mine from 12 inches to 8 inches to fit in a Pringles can. But you don’t have to.  I painted the ends just to add some color. šŸ™‚

I wrapped my Pringles can with scrapbook paper after measuring the can and then cutting the paper accordingly.  I used double stick tape to attach it. (I am showing you with a breadcrumbs can because I forgot to photograph this part. Sorry.) Note:  It is not wise to buy BBQ flavor.  Unless you want your set to smell like BBQ. I’m telling you. Go for the original flavor.

I made a fun little tag and laminated it (I will laminate anything) to make it last a bit longer.
(That second photo is the tag coming out of the laminator upside down. Just in case you were wondering.)
Now it’s a simple game of tic tac toe that we can play over and over again. šŸ™‚
My girls are having such fun with it and keep asking to play. It’s perfect for a rainy day or even little favor gifts at parties.  Have fun with it. šŸ™‚
Diana, thank you for inviting me to be part of this wonderful series. I just adore your super fun blog full of incredible goodies.  
I love making new friends and would love to meet some of you.  I wish I was this savvy girl who utilizes social networking to the fullest.  But twitter confuses me and Facebook overwhelms me. Buuuuut…I am on Instagram and I am still a Pinterest girl.  It must be a photo thing so let’s hook up at those places. šŸ™‚
And I am in the middle of a complete blog makeover so when you visit TSOP…don’t mind all the plain jane stuff.  I will be up and running in no time with a much more inviting space.
Can’t wait to meet you!
