Could you use a little something for those moments at a restaurant, doctor’s office, church etc. where you need your kids to sit/wait quietly? OR do you have children who have a bus ride to school or need something different for recess time? Here is a fun “little something” you can make and put in your bag or your child’s backpack for those very moments. Better yet, share the love, make a few and share them with friends for Valentines Day with this Valentine version of tic-tac-toe made specifically for when you’re on the go.
- burlap bags (I found a 6 pack at Hobby Lobby)
- Nail polish- I only ended up using white and clear (another option would be paint markers)
- 3D fabric paint
- 10 small rocks (I found a bag of about 80 rocks at Walmart for a buck)
First draw two horizontal lines and two vertical lines in the center of the bag to make the tic-tac-toe board with the 3D paint. Set them aside to dry while you work on the rocks.
Using the white nail polish paint an X on 5 rock a heart on the other 5. (I chose to try it with nail polish because I think nail polish will be more durable and last longer. It would definitely be easier to use a marker though if you don’t want to try the nail polish or if you are doing it with children) You may make mistakes but the great thing about this is you can use acetone to wipe it off and start over. It took me a few mistakes to get it down.
Once the rocks have dried, put a clear coat on for extra protection.
And there you have it. A quick, easy and super cute Valentine gift to help in those ho hum moments!!
SEE THE HAPPY!
