DIY Tic-Tac-Toe game

You can make a cute DIY Tic-Tac-Toe game that doubles as a Valentine's Day card for each kid in the class. Use yummy Strawberry Fields Tic Tacs as markers (and they're pink—perfect!). You can find Tic Tac Toe printables online and then you just need to have your kid package the game. Bonus: You can sub out the Tic Tacs for other candies that are V-Day themed—hello, cinnamon hearts. Get started here>
