Tic Tac Toe Game


This tic tac toe game  also doubles as a wallet/pouch  which makes it portable and useful for carrying the pieces for the game and any other small items. The pouch is made with acrylic yarn which is durable, washable and lightweight.

Size 9″ x 10″



I will be making  crochet games  for the children over the next few months. I decided to start with a on old favourite; a tic tac toe game.  When your children play tic tac toe they engage in an off screen activity that can challenge them mentally.


Use this game for you children if you would like to:

  • Teach them good sportsmanship.
  • Help your children apply their logic as well as  develop strategy at an early age.
  • Prepare them for more complex games because they have to think of multiple things at one time
  • Help develop coordination, fine motor skills and visual skills.
  • Assist them in  learning how to follow rules as well as  take turns.
  • Assist in improving your child/children’s concentration.
  • Help them lean patience as they wait for their partner to play.

I decided to convert this game into a pouch for a few reasons.

  1. With the holidays  just around the corner families may be planning a trip of some sort. It is always helpful to have something to occupy  your children on these car rides or plane rides.
  2. The pieces can fit very neatly into the pouch which hopefully will prevent them from getting lost  ( Hopefully 🙂 )
  3. The  pouch is also large  enough for  other small items.


Acrylic yarn  was my yarn of choice for this tic tac toe game .

The game is therefore

  1. More durable
  2. Less sensitive to washers as well as dryers
  3. Lightweight, which impacts on the ease of carrying the pouch
  4. Free from scales. This  means it is suitable for children that suffer with allergies.
