Tic Tac Toe

We've been busy this summer with chores, school work and of course fun, fun and more fun.  You can check out my summer schedule HERE and how I get my kids to do chores HERE.

One fun activity we did was to make a ladybug and bumble bee tic tac toe game.

Thanks to the Spencinator who's always bringing home rocks,  we have a nice rock collection in one of our front flower beds.  I just looked there to find 10 smooth oval rocks.  Below is a sampling of what we used.

From there it was painting time.  I let Sweetie Pie do it all.  She loves to paint and had a great time doing this project. Since the Babes wanted to help too, we let her paint her own rocks.

5 rocks were painted yellow and the other 5 red.

Then she used black to embellish them to look like bumble bees and ladybugs.  She also used white to add eyes to the ladybugs.

I thought about getting a stepping stone or stump to create the tic tac toe board but haven't done that yet, so we just made a board out of chalk.

Of course, I didn't think of this idea on my own.  Thanks to Pinterest, I was able to find several versions  including THIS one.

I've got even more summer fun ideas coming up later this week and next so stay tuned.
