Frighten a friend into playing a game of spooky tic-tac-toe. Your friend will fear more than just losing, especially if there's candy on the line!
What You'll Need
- Magnetic sheeting: one black 5 x5-inch piece; one orange and one white 11/2 x71/2-inch piece
- Tracing paper
- Manicure scissors
- Fine-point opaque paint markers: brown, black
- 20-inch length of green satin ribbon, 1/8 inch wide
- Thick craft glue
Step 1: Using a pattern (download our Spooky Tic-Tac-Toe pumpkin and ghost patterns as a PDF), trace and cut out five pumpkins from the orange magnetic sheeting and five ghosts from the white magnetic sheeting. When cutting the shapes out of the magnetic sheeting, use regular scissors most of the time, and use the manicure scissors for the small curves.
Step 2: Draw the stem and lines on the pumpkins with the brown marker; let dry. Draw faces on the pumpkins with the black marker; let dry.
Step 3: Draw eyes and mouths on the ghosts with the black marker; let dry.
Step 4: Cut the ribbon into four 5-inch lengths. Glue the four lengths of ribbon to the black magnetic sheeting to make a tic-tac-toe grid.
Step 5: Begin lining up opponents to play!Note: Spooky Tic-Tac-Toe game by Cindy Groom Harry.
