Silverware and Sugar Packet Tic-Tac-Toe
Activity DesignerChristen Hanson
My childhood visits to grandpa always ended with a trip to Marie Callender's for grilled cheese and pie. There was always a wait. My siblings and I enjoyed ogling the pies while we waited to be seated, but we were antsy when we finally got to sit down. My parents had some tricks up their sleeves that didn't need the use of technology! One of my dad's favorites was making a tic-tac-toe board out of silverware, with sugar packets for the X's and O's.
How We Did It
Then we selected colors from the sugar basket. B was happy to be allowed to take packets out. He later happily put them back, one by one. Old resentments of my older sister always claiming pink resurfaced. My older brother getting always had second choice, leaving me with yellow or white. I guess today's kids are lucky to also have blue to choose from.
