I am a huge fan of busy bags! My kids think they are so much fun and I love knowing I already have activities prepped and ready to go–especially on a busy day!
We always play Tic Tac Toe while we are waiting for our food at a restaurant so I knew this easy Tic Tac Toe busy bag would be a hit!
Tic Tac Toe Busy Bag
- 10 rocks (I used 2 different colors, but you can always color them)
- One tree branch or trunk slice
The base for the Tic Tac Toe game is one of our tree “blocks” that we got from the ends of our Christmas tree. If you don’t have a tree slice available I have seen nice ones for sale in the wood section at the craft store.
I used white and black rocks from our garden for the markers, but you can designate whose is whose by painting or writing on them with permanent marker.
The kids drew a Tic Tac Toe board on the tree slice with chalk and got ready to play!
The Tic Tac Toe busy bag fits nicely into a quart sized plastic bag so can easily be taken with us anywhere they have time to kill. It is also a nice way to spend an lazy afternoon outdoors!
