DIY Pocket Tic Tac Toe Game with Printable

Summer means road trips for many families! And what’s not to love about hours and hours confined in a car with a bunch of stir crazy, hungry, and bored kids?? ha! Well, today I’m sharing a fun little DIY Pocket Tic Tac Toe game that *just might* save your sanity…. for at least a few minutes….during a road trip or at church, or in the post office line, or just driving across town. Sometimes you just need a couple minutes where the kids are pre-occupied!

3. Decoupage the Title piece to the top of the Altoids tin using the foam brush and then decoupage the game board to the inside of the tin and the “X” and “O” pieces to circle magnets. Allow to dry thoroughly and you have a fun game to play on the go!

Note: It would be a good idea to seal with a clear sealer, if the decoupage dries sticky. (some brands do)
