Tic tac toe is a classic game for a reason–it’s easy to play and lots of fun!
We play on paper in restaurants, outside with sidewalk chalk, and with our tic tac toe busy bag, we’ve even made glow in the dark tic tac toe. Now we’ve taken it to the next level and added food! I made a simple Tic Tac Toe Snack Plate for my kids so they can play tic tac toe while they snack.
Thanks Horizon Organic for sponsoring snack time fun!
Tic Tac Toe Snack Plate
- glass plate
- rubbing alcohol
- cotton balls
- Sharpie paint pens (must be oil based)
- Horizon Snack Grahams
I didn’t want the paint to be on the food side of the tic tac toe plate so I wrote on the back of a glass plate. Before you begin, wipe down the plate with rubbing alcohol to remove all traces of dirt and oil. Make sure not to touch the surface you are writing on after you clean it. Any place you touch will not fully cure.
After the plate is clean and dry you can draw your tic tac toe board. I felt like it was too plain only having the board so I added a polka dot border. You can decorate it any way you like, just don’t get fingerprints on the surface.
When you are done put the plate in a cold oven and turn it on to 350 degrees. Let it bake for an hour. Then shut off the oven and let it cool completely before removing. Once it is cured wash it and it’s ready for snack time.
Grab two different types of snack crackers, we chose the Horizon honey and chocolate snack grahams, and get ready to play!
If you want to play today you can always just draw a tic tac toe board on a paper plate too. I really like the idea of being able to reuse it though, I think we will be making these to give as homemade gifts.
My kids and I have been having so much fun with our Tic Snack Toe plate <–see what I did there?!?
It’s an easy way to make any day special.
