Valentine Craft: Tic Tac Toe Hearts



By Marie LeBaron

When you think Valentines, what comes to mind? Hearts, red & pink, and crafts, right? Well I’ve included all three of those elements into the classic game of Tic Tac Toe.

(Oh, and chocolates are included too, which I was eating as I was crafting these red & pink hearts!)

Supplies for Valentine Tic Tac Toe with heart bean bags:
* poster board – white, red, or pink
* black marker
* red & pink felt, 3 squares each
* dry beans – any kind or size
* sewing machine or hot glue gun
Step 1:
Fold your poster board in half. Then cut a large heart out. Get it as big as you can. Then open it up and draw in your lines. You’ll need two vertical and two horizontal lines. Use a pencil to make the lines first, then trace over it with a black marker. I used the extra piece of poster board left over to make nice straight lines.

Now you’re ready to make your heart bean bags. (You could just use heart paper or flat felt hearts, but bean bags are much more fun to play with.) You should be able to get 4 flat felt hearts out of each felt square.

Then place two together and sew or hot glue around, Hot Glued Hearts tutorial. I like to use a zig zag stitch when sewing, making it pretty or you could use pinking shears for a pretty edge as well. Make sure to leave at least an inch of space to fill in with the dry beans.

Now fill your bags about half way full with beans. You want to be able to close that small hole and sew or glue it together, and if there are too many beans, it will be hard to seal it shut.

Now you’re ready to play. Find an opponent and let the games begin!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Hi marie! This is so cute! Facebook is notorious for not notifying page owners when I tag them, so I thought I would stop by and let you know myself that I featured this on my page :)
