There are games. And there are crafts. But when you put the two together you’ve got a fun-filled two-fer that’ll burn through an afternoon like your Little burns through snacks. Scroll through to find games you can make and play in one sitting.

Tic Tac Draw

Oil pastels are the key to this vibrant DIY tic-tac-toe game your little artist can craft. It all starts with a rock hunt, to find 12 smooth ones that will become the perfect game pieces. From there, it’s as easy as color, seal and play. We’ll leave it to Leslie from Pink Stipey Socks to give you the full deets.


Which one does your kiddo want to make and then play? Tell us in a comment.
