Wow! It has been awhile. It has been an eventful and crazy fall, so posting was way down on the priority list, but I hope to start sharing a little more regularly now.
Today, I am sharing a new game that I put together for our cub scout blue and gold banquet. We are having a carnival and the cubmaster asked each of the dens to come up with a simple carnival game for the boys to play after dinner and awards. So, our den is doing this simple tic tac toe beanbag game. It was quick and easy to make and my boys think it is pretty fun.
I sewed up some simple bean bags in fabric scraps I had on hand. Of course, I had to use blue and gold. I though about putting X's and O's on them, but then decided just having one player use the blue bean bags and the other player use the gold would accomplish the same purpose and save me a bunch of time.
My husband built the tic tac toe board for me out of 2x4's. The outside dimensions are 3 feet by 3 feet and the cross bars are positioned every 12 inches, for nice, even squares. It literally took him less than 10 minutes to put this together for me. I thought about painting it, but decided that I liked the natural look. :)
Hopefully the cub scouts will enjoy it at the banquet and then my boys can enjoy playing a little active tic tac toe at home from time to time.
