For version #2, I pulled out my large graphing mat and some of the squares from our attribute blocks. If you don’t have the mat, you could make a large board on the floor with masking tape and use bean bags or paper squares. This was their favorite way to play because they could stand and move and see it from every angle.
Version #3 uses whiffle balls and a box that contained a shipment of grapefruits from Florida! As soon as it arrived, I knew that it would be perfect for tic-tac-toe.
Version #4 is perfect for spring. We cut apart an 18-egg carton and used 2 colors of Easter eggs as the markers. They love this!
Have you ever played tic-tac-toe with your kids? How do they do? I’d love to compare notes!
Enjoy the day with your children.
