Quiet Book Games Part 3: Tic Tac Toe (Free Template Included)

Today is part three in my quiet book game series.  I hope you're enjoying them!  Today I'm share how to make a tic-tac-toe game.  Who ever gets tired of this one?

  Be sure to check out the other posts in this series too!  (You'll find them listed at the end of the tutorial.)  Don't forget to check back in a few weeks for a huge giveaway once this series is over.

What you'll need to make a tic-tac-toe quiet book game:
1. Template (found at the end of this post)
2. A pre-cut blank quiet book page.  I always use Pellon peltex for my quiet book pages--it's sturdy and you don't have to worry about fraying edges.  I make all my quiet book pages 7 x 8.5 inches.
3. Black felt.
4. Fusible webbing (I use Pellon wonder under)
5. Velcro, strips and sticky dots
6. Two sets of 5 coordinating buttons


Download and print the template.  Place the template under the fusible webbing and trace the tic-tac-toe board using a pencil.

Bubble cut around the tic-tac-toe board.

Now iron it to your black felt following the fusible webbing instructions.

Use your scissors to cut out the tic-tac-toe board and then peel off the paper backing.

Lay your tic-tac-toe board (fusible webbing side down) onto your quiet book page.  Cover with a scrap piece of fabric and use your iron to adhere the board to the page.

Sew a strip of velcro to each end of your quiet book page.  Place velcro sticky dots to the back of your buttons.

Use the velcro strip to store the buttons when not playing.

Don't forget to add holes for binding along the edge of your page using a single hole punch.  Enjoy playing your new tic-tac-toe game!
