The weather around here has refused to cooperate lately. It's cold and windy and rainy, not the warm spring days we would normally expect in May. I whipped up this simple rainy day activity for the kids out of felt and embroidery thread and hot glue.
I cut the pieces free hand. I debated sewing the squares and letters onto the base piece of felt, but that seemed like too much work. Hot glue is holding it together just fine.
I cut a piece of purple felt just a bit shorter than the yellow piece and sewed along three sides using a blanket stitch. This makes a little pocket to keep the X's and O's in when the game isn't in use. (if you don't know how to do a blanket stitch, here's a youtube video showing you how. It's simple, you can do it.)
My two oldest daughters have been taking turns teaching their little brother tic-tac-toe strategy all afternoon. (I may have played a few times too...)
Cute, right? Also, I love that my kids can play tic tac toe all afternoon without using up a single sheet of paper!
