A Quick Game

My parents sent my children sweet Valentine cards in the mail.  My son's card had a cute little alien tic-tac-toe game inside.  It was a game board to cut out and removable stickers. 

We decided we'd like it to be a little more long term than the stickers would likely allow. 

Here's what you'll need to make your own:

- Valentine card with tic-tac-toe game OR just make/print off your own.  Here is a cute hamster one.

- 10-12 wooden 1 1/2 inch circles.  I get mine at Michaels.  $2.99 for a pack of 22

- glue if you aren't using stickers.

- optional: clear contact paper to make the game board really sturdy.  **an especially good idea if using the printable option**

Okay, here's where it gets really tricky...

Step one:  Apply stickers to wooden circles.  Just kidding, it's not really tricky at all.  You'll need to glue them if using the printable sheet.

Step two:  This one is optional.  For an extra sturdy game board you'll want to carefully cover both sides in clear contact paper and trim the edges.  You'll want to do this as smoothly as possible so you're not left with air bubbles.  (Poke tiny pin holes in the bubbles if you need to.)

Step three:  Play.

Thanks Mom and Dad for thinking of the kids and inspiring a craft!

How cute is this! Glad I didn't think of it, or I'd have been all guilty feeling about not making it for them...
