This Easter Tic-Tac-Toe DIY is a take on the classic game many of us are familiar with. The game itself encourages problem solving but in a fun and engaging way. We are currently enjoying the My Creative Box kits and the materials for this DIY were provided here.
Easter Tic-Tac-Toe DIY
What we used
- Rolling Pin
- Air dry clay. DAS Modelling Clay is made in Italy and appropriate for children aged 3 and over. I used to use the DAS Modelling Clay myself to make things as a child on my summer stays in Europe! If you’re keen on more art and craft activities with clay, check it out.
- Oval cutter
- 5 wooden rabbit shapes
- 5 wooden chick shapes
- 4 sticks
- Paint (any colour)
- Roll the air dry clay on a flat surface.
- Use the oval cutter to create 10 oval moulds.
- Paint the 5 wooden rabbit shapes in a colour of your choice.
- Paint the 5 wooden chick shapes in a colour of your choice.
- Once dry, glue the wooden rabbit shapes and wooden chick shapes onto the oval moulds.
- Let the glue set.
- Set up the 4 sticks with 2 placed horizontally and another 2 placed vertically.
- Choose 2 players. Each player to select the wooden rabbit pieces or the wooden chick pieces.
- Play! The aim of the game is to be the first to get 3 of the same pieces in a row (vertically, horizontally or diagonally!)
It may be a good idea to make use of any of the left over clay in line with the Easter theme! For example some Easter Eggs that can be painted and decorated once the clay sets and dries into shape.
