Bottle Cap Tic-Tac-Toe

Emily has been playing lots of Tic-Tac-Toe with Mark lately, and they have been using up quite a bit of our scrap paper to play. This bottle cap version uses just one half of an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper and 10 bottle caps (5 of each kind). Be careful to make sure the caps do not have any sharp edges, and that the kids are old enough to know not to put things in their mouths.

Emily keeps her Tic-Tac-Toe game set by her night table, and it has become one of her most treasured games.

  2. @ MaryAnne — I love using recyclables. I consider them free art materials, and it's good for the planet!

    Fun! My 8 year old is obsessed with bottle caps. Today he was rummaging through a coolerful of beer saking if anyone had seen the bud Light! It just sounded so funny, espcially coming from an 8 yo!

  9. Cute idea! I've done this with plastic bottle caps and put stickers on the top for matching letters.
