What You’ll Need
- Double-sided tape
- Empty dental-floss box
What to Do
- Use double-sided tape to attach a ribbon hanger to an empty floss box. Cover the box with felt using glue. The felt piece covering the back should be long enough to include the flap over the top. Add Velcro to the flap.
- For the game board, glue thin pieces of ribbon on the back of the floss box. Add felt decorations to the front.
- For game pieces, cut five little squares of felt in one color, and five little circles of felt in another color. Game play is traditional tic-tac-toe. Store the pieces inside the box when you’re not playing.
Extend the Fun
For younger kids: When you’re not playing tic-tac-toe, use your decorated floss box to hold other items—doll shoes, pennies, or teeth you’ve lost. Count the number of items that fit in the box.
For older kids: On paper, try these two variations of the game: Wild Tic-Tac-Toe, where you choose to be X or O on each move, and three in a row wins or loses—you make the rules! Or SOS, where you choose to be S or O on each move, winning a point and another turn for each SOS sequence you create. The person with the most points wins.
