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.


Additional benefits to your children:

  • It teaches good sportsmanship.
  • It helps children apply their logic and develop strategy at an early age.
  • It prepares children for more complex games because they have to think of multiple things at one time.
  • Tic-tac-toe helps develop coordination, fine motor skills and visual skills.
  • It helps children learn how to follow rules and take turns.
  • It can help improve your child’s concentration.
  • It helps 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 large  enough for some other small items.


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

  1. Items made with acrylic yarn tend to me more durable
  2. Acrylic yarn is  less sensitive to washers and dryers
  3. It is a lightweight yarn which impacts on the ease of carrying the pouch
  4. Free from scales which means that they are suitable for persons that are allergic to this fabric
