Floating Tic Tac Toe Board
One of the reasons I love summer is because it often involves water, in our case lots of time spent by the pool. Water makes just about everything more fun. For example: tic tac toe is pretty fun, but floating tic tac toe is super fun! Stand in the shallow end, sit on the steps, grab a friend, and pass the time with this splash happy version of a childhood classic.
Making your own floating board game is easy!
craft foam sheets
empty plastic bottles/pool noodle pieces/pipe insulation
hot glue gun
If using pool noodles or pipe insulation cut it down to fit under your foam sheet. (I’ve found a serrated knife works best.)
Hot glue your pieces/bottles to your foam sheet. Simply run a stripe lengthwise down your bottle and stick it to the foam. Repeat until you have support under your whole sheet.
My foam sheets where a little thin so I added another layer of foam with hot glue.
Make your board: cut four strips of foam and glue them onto the top foam sheet in a hashtag shape.
Make your pieces: cut out about 5 X’s and 5 O’s.
Hop in the water and have fun! Water helps the foam pieces stick to the board so don’t be afraid to get it wet!
Here’s to playing in the pool!
