Travel Tic Tac Toe

Summertime means spending days at the park, beach or in the car on a road trip.  I am always on the look out for fun activities my kids can do in all those places that don’t require me to lug a bunch of stuff around.  As my kiddos get older they are looking for games they can play on their own and tic tac toe has become a crowd favourite around here.

Instead of filling up notebooks with their different games, I decided to raid my scrap bin and make a fabric travel tic tac toe that can be tucked in my purse for those times when we need an activity.

Velcro® Brand Toss Game

It is the week of kids stuff and I couldn’t be happier.  I had forgotten how much I enjoy sewing things for my kids, whether it is clothes or fun things for around the house.  When Emily of Nap Time Creations asked if I would join her Summer Fun Series I quickly signed up, what a great excuse to focus on my kiddos this summer and making something fun for them.  For my project in the series I decided to go with a fun VELCRO® Brand Toss Game that actually turned into quite the scrap buster.

Beach Treasures Necklace

Do your kids come home from the beach with pockets full of treasures?  To my 3 year old everything from a super small rock to a big shell are her treasures and they must all come home with her so she can sleep with them that night.  Yes my child puts them in a tupperware and sleeps with them.  Because obviously you sleep with your treasures.

While I was home sick nursing a nasty cold this weekend Sean and the kids headed up to Canada to visit Sean’s brother and sister in law.  They live right across the street from the beach so there were many treasures to be found.
