Quiet Book Page 12: Tic-Tac-Toe

Most of the pages I put in my quiet book are educational. This is one of the pages that isn't so much for learning as it is for fun. 

Page 12: Tic-Tac-Toe

Teaches: Matching, taking turns, winning and losing

My inspiration for this page came from here. Pinterest almost always had several ideas for each page I wanted to make and this was my favorite tic-tac-toe page. Bonus: it came with a pattern!!

Here is how my page turned out: 

I chose 3 colors to use - black, cream, and red. I then cut out the pattern pieces and stitched everything together. In the pops and podge page, she used fabric glue to hold most of her things together. I stitched all of mine. All of the black as well as the velcro is machine stitched, while the X's and O's are hand stitched to the circles. 

There is a pocket in the top left corner of the page for the extra pieces to be stored. Each piece has velcro on the back and there is velcro sewn in each square on the grid. 

I sewed the letters on by machine and it was surprisingly easy and turned out great! 

When making this quiet book, I was getting tired and overwhelmed. I was thinking about which pages to eliminate and this was a contender. My husband didn't want me to because then he wouldn't have a page to play with; so it ended up staying. I am so happy with how it turned out.
