With the holiday season approaching, families will spend more and more time on the road as they visit family and friends. To keep the kids (and adults, too) occupied without hours upon hours of screen time, we’ve come up with a simple, fun way to create a travel tic-tac-toe game.
Here’s how you make it:
4” x 6” Celestial Gifts cotton muslin drawstring bag
20 small, flat pebbles (preferably uncoated, because you’ll be writing on them)
1 black permanent marker
1 white (or other color) permanent marker
Draw a tic-tac-toe shape over the cotton muslin drawstring bag (3 down and 3 across). Draw an X on 10 pebbles and an O on the other 10 pebbles. You’ll only need a few of the pebbles for the actual game, but it’s best to be prepared with extras in case a few go missing.
Store your pebbles in the cotton muslin drawstring bag when the game is not in play and use the bag for your board while traveling!
