Tremendous Tic Tac Toe

Teaches vocabulary • Can be used over and over! • Inexpensive game 🙌🏽

Who doesn't love Tic Tac Toe? This simple game has taught generations how to think strategically, but today, we're adding an extra learning boost! You guessed it: This marvelous Malty take on the classic also helps little ones to practice their

English and Spanish vocabulary. 😍


 Like most Malty the Blue Tiger crafts, this easy DIY only takes a few steps, but can be used over and over again for endless fun! ​Even better, the photos are found in the back of your book—just make copies of the "Words I Learned Today" section! 

We love when a game can engage children and encourage them to get away from screens, and this upgraded version of Tic Tac Toe does just that. What's your favorite classic game from childhood? Were you a hot potato pro, or perhaps a puzzle perfectionist? 🎲

Tell us by posting your favorite game on social media, and using the hashtag #MaltyTheBlueTiger!

Have a blast Malty friends, and happy Tic Tac Toe-ing! 🤗🐯

Hugs and roars, 

Your Malty Friends 💙

Step 1

Paint a wood square, 4 wood sticks, and 9-10 wood pegs shades of blue and yellow! (Make sure half of the pegs are one color, and the other half, another color.) 🙃

Step 2

Glue the sticks into a grid on the wood square. 

Trim if necessary!

Step 3

Make copies of the "Words I Learned Today" section of the book. Glue 9 photos to the spaces in the grid.

Play Tic Tac Toe using the yellow pieces as "X" and the blue pieces as "O." Ask your child to guess the English and Spanish vocabulary word for each photo before putting down a piece.
