Portable Tic-Tac-Toe



  1. Trace the wipes box over the yellow, off-white, and blue felt and cut out rectangles that are slightly smaller than the traced dimension.
  2. Glue the yellow felt to the bottom interior of the box and the off-white to the inside of the lid.  
  3. Glue the blue felt to the top of the lid.
  4. Pizza Time: For the crust, cut out a triangle-shaped pizza slice from yellow felt. 
  5. For the sauce and cheese, repeat with the red and off-white felt. Cut along the tops of these triangles in a curved line. 
  6. Glue sauce and cheese over the pizza slice. Let dry and then glue over the lid of the wipes box.

  7. With the off-white felt, cut four thin, wavy pieces to create more cheese. 
  8. Arrange these pieces into a tic-tac-toe board over the yellow felt inside the box. Glue to secure.
  9. Next: Toppings! Cut out pepperonis, mushrooms, olives, and peppers to be the tic-tac-toe play pieces. Make sure to make four of each topping. 
  10. Glue velcro dots to the backs of each topping.
