Making fun DIY gifts during the holiday season is one of my favorite ways to show I care. And on top of being personal and unique, DIY gifts are also budget-friendly.
Whether you’re looking for a cute DIY gift that your kids will love or a cheap stocking stuffer idea, you are going to love this adorable tic-tac-toe game. In addition to being easy (and cheap) to make, it will provide endless amounts of fun for your kids.
What Do I Need to Make a Tic-Tac-Toe Game?
To make this simple stocking stuffer, you’ll need three basic supplies: mini drawstring fabric bags (canvas or thick muslin), a fabric marker, and tic-tac-toe tokens. And the beauty of this simple craft is you can easily make it your own.
To ensure this game can be used over and over again, I decided to use a small canvas gift bag for my tic tac toe container, (can use thick muslin bags if you can’t find canvas). And since it’s fabric, I couldn’t use a plain marker because it would bleed on the canvas.
If you’re wondering how you can customize this cute stocking stuffer, I have you covered with some additional ideas! Instead of a canvas bag, why not try using a:
- Small paper gift bag
- Gift card container
- Altoid tin
- Reusable snack bag
- Cute Holiday Print Box from a dollar store.
And instead of bells as tic-tac-toe tokens, why not use these fun ideas:
- Painted rocks
- Christmas stickers
- Mini Christmas erasers
- Mini Christmas ornaments
- Red and green buttons
There are so many easy ways to create your very own tic tac toe stocking stuffer!
How to Make Easy Tic Tac Toe Game Christmas Kids Craft
Making this travel tic tac toe game is so easy! First, grab your bag and make sure the surface is nice and smooth.
If you’re using a fabric bag, you may need to iron out any wrinkles or creases before you start drawing on the front of the bag.
Using a fabric marker, draw two vertical lines and two horizontal lines on the front of the bag to form a grid to play tic tac toe.
You can draw these lines freehand, but I didn’t trust myself! I used a ruler to make sure the lines were straight and even as I drew.
To finish making your tic tac toe game, gather your game tokens.
To play the game, each player will need at least five tokens. I chose to add an extra bell in my bags in case one gets lost as the kids are playing.
- Mini canvas bags
- Fabric marker
- Red And Green Mini Bells
- Use a ruler to draw a grid on one side of the mini canvas bag.
- Place six red and six green mini bells inside the bag.
It’s just that easy, can you believe it?
I love this because it’s super inexpensive, easy to make, easy to personalize, and can provide endless hours of fun for the kids.
