Hi, everyone.  I'm Heidi from One Creative Mommy.  My blog is all about the crazy life of a busy mom.  I love to share crafts, DIY, printables and gluten-free recipes.  I'm so excited to be a part of the Fun in the Sun series with Valerie and Laura!  
School is officially out in my neck of the woods, and the kids are ready for some fun!

We played this creative game at our family reunion last summer (hence the *Survivor-style buff my daughter is sporting in the pictures).  Frisbee is always fun, and so's tic-tac-toe, so we thought we'd combine them for Frisbee Tic-Tac-Toe.  Here's what you need to know to play in your own back yard:

Frisbee Tic-Tac-Toe

  • Two colors of frisbees (at least four of each color)  These can usually be found at the dollar store.  If you'd rather use the frisbees you already have, just use a little duck tape to create two different styles, or simply draw X's and O's with a sharpie.
  • 1 heavy shower curtain or tarp
  • Colored duck tape or masking tape
Set up: Using duck or masking tape, create a tic-tac-toe grid on a sturdy shower curtain or tarp.  We used a dollar store shower curtain, and it was a little too flimsy.  We had to use rocks to hold down the edges. If you are using a tent tarp with those handy little grommet holes along the edges, you can even stake it down to keep your board nice and smooth (and to keep it from blowing away!)

How to Play: The object of the game is the same as regular tic-tac-toe.  The first team to get three of their own frisbees in a row on the board wins the game.
  1. Divide the players into teams.  (You can play one-on-one or with teams.)  Each team gets a single color (or style) of frisbee.
  2. Teams take turns throwing a single frisbee toward the board (hoping to actually land in the square they aimed for).
  3. The game is over when one team has landed three of their frisbees in a row onto the board (up-and-down, across, or diagonally).
  • For younger players, allow the kids to get the frisbee onto the board any way they can.  (Toss, roll, etc.)
  • Use a giant tarp to create a huge board for a large group.
If frisbees from different teams land in the same square, you have a two choices:
  1. Continue play and allow either team to claim that square with three in a row.
  2. The new frisbee knocks the old frisbee out of play.

Now here's the most important instruction:  HAVE FUN! Thanks so much to Valerie and Laura for letting me join you today.  You can find me any time over at One Creative Mommy, or visit me via social media.  I'd love to hear from you!
