Emoji Tic Tac Toe Game

Tic Tac Toe, an all-time classic game.  Simple and easy, anyone can play.

Summer time is winding down and my kids are getting a little restless.  They are excited for school to start but also don’t want to give up the lazy days of summer vacation.  The other day my daughter and I put down our cell phones and I asked her if she wanted to play tic tac toe.  To my surprise, she said yes.  Of course, we played the old fashioned way. I thought it would be fun to create a tic tac toe game we could use over and over again.

You will only need a few things to create this project.  It’s about 15 minutes from start to finish, plus dry time.
