This DIY Halloween Board Game Is So Fun It's Scary

Tic Tac Boo is a classic game reimagined for ghouls and gals!

Related To:

If you’re looking for a sugar-free alternative this Halloween, our themed DIY tic-tac-toe game is fun enough to keep your kids out of the candy bowl and cute enough to display throughout the season. You can use any shapes you want for your custom pieces, but we created a darling printable using ghost and bat silhouettes. 

What You'll Need

  • 8" x 10" MDF panel or cardboard
  • drawstring bag
  • glitter foam sheets with adhesive back
  • black construction paper
  • alphabet stickers

Cut your foam sheet to fit the MDF panel. Download our Ghost and Bat Printable as a template for the game pieces.  

Cut construction paper into four 5-inch-long thin strips to build the grid. Glue the strips onto your 8x10” foam sheet board.

Create 5 pieces of both the bat and ghost shapes so either team has enough to win the game. Adhere a pair of googly eyes to each game piece.

Label and customize the drawstring bag with alphabet stickers.

Play and enjoy!
