Halloween Tic Tac Toe Game

This Halloween Tic Tac Toe game was so easy to make and enjoy, I thought I’d share it so everyone could share in the fun. Let’s get started with this easy Halloween craft for kids.

Halloween Tic Tac Toe

Halloween Tic Tac Boo!

This Halloween Tic Tac Toe game was ridiculously easy to make and the little one (and her friends) have been having so much fun! But if I’m being honest, that is not why I’m posting it here.

There are so many crafts I conjure up that never make it to Ruffles and Rain Boots. Some don’t show up here because I doubt myself, others are just too difficult. And honestly, sometimes I don’t take the time to visit with you here because I’d rather sit and play with my daughter instead of taking pictures, editing them, and writing up a post.

This Halloween Tic Tac Toe game, however, is a winner all around, so I’m sharing it with you. If you want to see it in action, check out the scope I did with the little one. It’s a bit more jumbled than my normal scopes, but when your co-star is 3, you learn to live with it.

Supplies for Halloween Tic Tac Toe

This is a very quick craft that only requires felt, scissors, and glue.

For reference, the glue I love to use when working with felt is this – it’s available at any craft store or online and it is inexpensive (affiliate link).

I had quite a bit of stiff felt in Halloween colors on hand, but you can use the loosey-goosey craft felt, too. I don’t think that’s the technical term…

A Tip for Making a Halloween Tic Tac Toe Game

Step 1: Make the game board.

In order for the Pumpkin Tic Tac Boo game to be ready for play as soon as possible, make the game board first so the glue is dry by the time you’re done. I cut the pumpkin shape and glued down the stem and leaf. Yep, I totally eye-balled this – no need to let my Type A qualities shine here.

Once I knew the size, I cut strips for the game board and glued down the long ones just as they were cut. For the cross pieces (vertical), I actually cut them into smaller pieces so they’d lie flat on the pumpkin instead of over the horizontal ones. Okay, so my Type A made a tiny appearance…

Choosing Shapes for a Halloween Tic Tac Toe Game

Step 2: Make the shapes.

My little one chose a ghost and a witch’s hat shape when I asked her, “What comes to mind when you think of Halloween?” Let your little one decide or surprise them. Other shapes you could make are cats, moons, spiders, pumpkins, or monsters.

  3. Make the shapes. I drew a couple shapes on a scrap piece of paper and used it as a guide to cut 5 game pieces of each shape. If you feel your drawing isn’t up to your child’s expectations (hah!), you could use clip art found online or even trace cookie cutters.

Aw, thanks, Lyn! I thought I might as well put a few scopes into the blog, right? As long as they are quick ones, it's just so much easier than editing a full video. Read that as, I'm totally too lazy to have to take all the hours to edit a video. :)

Thank you so much for the pin!

Brilliant idea! Yes it does tend to rain a lot in Victoria as well. Always looking for inside fun!!!

My daughter is currently all about anything to do with Witches. She was very excited to see witch hats!

What is it about witches? Right now, my little one is both intrigued and terrified of them. Thanks for stopping by, Ashley!

Thanks so much, Brittany and what a great idea to bring it in the car! Right now, all we do is swap out books.

With the stiff felt used in this Halloween Tic Tac Toe game, my daughter could easily play it on her lap! Thanks for the idea!
