Try this tic-tac-toads game and get hopping on this great new game of three in a row! Give tic-tac-toe a hoppy new boost by making the traditional X's and O's color-coded frogs. This game is ideal for children that enjoy easy crafts.

What You'll Need:

  • Colored paper
  • Colored markers or crayons
  • Scissors
  • Plain paper
  • Envelope
  • Clear adhesive vinyl (optional)

Draw and cut out two sets of nine paper frogs. Cut out one set from green paper and the other from blue paper (or any color you like best.)

Draw a standard tic-tac-toe game board as shown in the illustration. Be sure to slip your leaping game pieces and board in an envelope for safekeeping between games.

To make your game extra sturdy, cover the frog game pieces and playing board with clear adhesive vinyl.
