How to Make a Tic-Tac-Toss Game

Posted by on Jun 9, 2013 in backyard, burlap, crafts | 16 comments

I think it was my 8th birthday when I got the game

Tic Tac Toss.

I remember the giant wrapped box.

I knew that the gift inside had to be good

just by the size of that box.

I set up the plastic game grid in the garage.

My bean bags were neon green and hot pink.

I loved that game.

I tried to create something similar for my girls.

Using a yardstick,

divide the tablecloth into thirds.

Mark with a Sharpie.

I played a few games with my girls to come up with some rules.

Here are our rules:

1. Find a line to stand behind.

2. Take turns tossing bean bags.

3. If your bag lands in a square that has already been taken,

you have to remove your bag and you don’t get to throw again.

4. If your bag lands on a line,

you move your bag to the square that your bag is in the most.

5. First one with 3 in a row wins!

Life to the full!

  2. I love this idea! I have a 8th birthday party coming up next month! Thanks for the idea.

  3. This looks adorable! I’m sure your girls and their friends will love it 🙂

  4. hah! adding this to the summer fun project list. where in the world did you get the cute duct tape!!!

  5. Ha ha ha! I remember that game! Living on a farm, we improvised with frogs instead of bean bags. We’d (gently) toss our frogs in the sandbox with squares drawn out and then use our hands to “encourage” them to hop in our square. We threw out the tic tac toe plan because we never could find enough frogs or decide how to know which frog was from our “team.” LOL It was hilarious though!

  6. Great idea, especially for a rainy day.


  7. LOVE!

  8. How fun is this! I’d love for you to come share this at our Pinteresting Party!
