Valentine's Day Tic Tac Toe Game





With Valentine's Day approaching...I thought I'd share a quick and easy project that you can whip up in no time flat!!

{I was ambitious one year and made one for all the kids in my daughter's class at school ~ that was ALOT of hearts to cut out!!}



What you'll need:
~Sheet of felt - (I used purple)
~Scraps of felt in 2 different colors - (I used pink and white)
~White dimensional paint {I used Scribbles brand} -- (or just use yarn)
~Tacky glue



First - download the PDF pattern (click picture below to download):




From the 2 colors of scrap felt - cut out 5 (five) 1" squares of each color {10 squares total.}

Fold each square in half and cut out the heart {you don't need a template for this...just wing it...you probably made hearts like this in Kindergarten!! However, I did include a "sample" small heart to give you the approx. size on the PDF pattern sheet.}

You'll now have 10 small hearts - 5 of each color.





Using the PDF template, cut out one large heart from felt.

Also, cut out a 3"x3" square from felt.



Using tacky glue on 3 of the 4 sides of the 3"x3" square, glue the square to the large heart. {This is the pocket to store the little heart pieces.}





With the dimensional paint {or use tacky glue and yarn instead}...paint the tic tac toe lines on the front of the heart. **Use the PDF template as your guide for placement.**





Let the paint dry! Store the little heart pieces in the back pocket.


Makes a CUTE alternative to a Valentine's Day card!!
