Tic Tac Toe

I love adding a fun new game to our schoolwork! I made a Tic Tac Toe game recently. It's great because it can be used to review anything. And works great with multiple ages. In fact, it's been a huge hit at our house. The kids ask for it almost everyday!

I cut the tops off of 2 file folders to make each side of the file folder even.  I over-lapped the two folders and adhered them together to make it a tri-fold - I used double sided tape, but you could also use glue.  I found a pack of library cards at my local teacher's store and adhered them to the file folder, 3 in a row on each flap.  I also added some cute lettering that I found in my scrapbooking stash.  I made a sheet of X's and O's on the computer, laminated them and cut them out.  I added Velcro dots to the back of each one, placing the other half of the Velcro dots on the library pockets.

Next I folded up the bottom flap and added a second set of Velcro dots here, so we had a storage spot for all
