I live in the foothills of North Carolina, where snow tends to hit us the hardest during the first three months of the year. We have already had two significant snowfalls in January. Kids love to play outside during this weather, but some days it is just too cold. On these days, they need other indoor activities to keep them occupied, like these snowman dry-erase games. These paper boards offer three options for children and even adults, including tic-tac-toe, dots and boxes, and drawing with dry-erase markers. They are easy to make and will provide hours of family fun!

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2 snowman boards

Supplies:

  • 2 pieces white card stock
  • scissors
  • dark permanent marker
  • pencil
  • laminating machine with sheets
  • dry erase markers (all colors)
  • marker eraser
  • ruler

Steps:

  1. Draw one snowman on each piece of cardstock and cut them out. I made mine roughly nine inches by 6 inches. Only draw the head and a big belly so you will have room for the games.
  2. Use the permanent marker to draw a tic-tac-toe grid on the back and front of one of the snowmen. Leave the second snowman blank. Laminate them both. Tic-tac-toe grids never change, so that is why you can draw them prior to laminating. After, you can draw a dot grid on the second snowman with a dry erase marker. I added a simple, 3x3 grid, but you could easily fit a larger one.
  3. Now you can play tic-tac-toe or dots and boxes using the dry erase markers and eraser.

    Rules for Tic-tac-toe: The object of the game is to get three in a row. Two players (one X and one O), take turns placing their letter on the game board until someone gets three in a row.

    Rules for Dots and Boxes: At least two players take turns drawing a line between two dots, either horizontally or vertically. The player that completes the fourth side of a square (a box) gets to draw another line. Each player should use a different color marker. For the larger grids, it helps for players to color their boxes as they are completed. When all boxes have been drawn in and/or colored in, the game ends and the player who has more boxes wins. It looks like there's a tie on the larger snowman!
  4. On the tic-tac-toe snowman, you can also use the dry erase markers to add a face. And on the other, the dots and boxes can be erased so the entire snowman can be drawn in! You can see these in the main photo!
