It's not tic-tac-toe, it's tic-tac-toads! Get hopping on this great new game of three in a row. The traditional game of tic-tac-toe gets a new boost in this frog activity by making the traditional X's and O's color-coded frogs.
What You'll Need:
- Colored paper
- Colored markers or crayons
- Plain paper
- Clear adhesive vinyl (optional)
How to Make Tic-Tac-Toads:
Step 1: Draw and cut out 2 sets of 9 paper frogs. Cut out one set from green paper and the other from blue paper (or any color you like best).
Step 2: Draw a standard tic-tac-toe game board as shown in the illustration.
Step 3: Slip your leaping game pieces and board in an envelope for safekeeping between games.
Step 4: To make your game extra sturdy, cover the frog game pieces and playing board with clear adhesive vinyl.
