Here's "food" that your parents won't yell at you for playing with! Try this pizza tic-tac-toe game and see how much fun it is. If you enjoy easy crafts, this game is perfect for you.

What You'll Need:

  • Cream felt
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Red felt
  • Tan felt
  • 20 inches of brown satin ribbon (one-eighth inch wide)
  • Craft glue

Cut a five-inch-diameter circle out of the cream felt. This is the crust. For the pepperoni game pieces, cut five one-inch circles from the red felt. For the mushroom game pieces, cut five one-inch squares from the tan felt. Trim the tan squares into mushroom shapes.

Cut the ribbon into four five-inch lengths. Glue the four lengths of ribbon to the cream circle to make a tic-tac-toe grid. Trim the extra ribbon that hangs over the sides of the felt circle.

To play, place the pepperoni and mushroom game pieces within the squares on the grid -- just as you would for a regular game of tic-tac-toe. Now it's time to practice your strategy to achieve victory!
