I’ve had the idea of a Valentine Tic Tac Toe printable stuck in my head for a while. My boy LOVES playing tic tac toe. He’s played it on phones, at restaurants (a few local restaurants have it on their children’s menus – smart!) and when we write it out for him. Sometimes he’ll play by himself and against himself. Also smart – he always wins.
I finally created one for him. Laminate it and it’s perfect for using over and over again!
Wouldn’t these make fun Valentine’s?
At some point, it can be frustrating to run out of paper – and to use so much paper. I love laminating things for my son and this will save on paper in the long run. (Also, if you were to use these as Valentine’s, you could write the child’s name on the back – and then that could be erased!)
I found a pack of mini dry erase markers – a pack of 6 for around $3. Not super expensive, and also great for preschooler hands.
As I was making these on my computer, my son walked by and asked if this was a tic-tac-toe game for him. He’s pretty excited about them.
You can download the PDF to print these on 8.5×11″ paper yourself! There are 4 on a sheet. This also gets you around the box of cards doesn’t equal the number of kids in the class. (For instance, this week my son’s class added a student. I had to buy a second box of Valentines because the boxes contain 16 and now I need ONE more.)
Will your child exchange Valentines next week? We actually have a couple of boxes of Ninja Turtle Valentines to write out this weekend. (Despite my son’s love of tic-tac-toe, his love of TMNT runs deep!)
