Kindergarten Games Activities: Dice Tic-Tac-Toe

based on 2 ratings

Grab some dice and play this take on tic-tac-toe. This game is incredibly easy to set up and is a great way to bond with your child while you build up her number recognition skills.

What You Need:

  • 9 sheets white paper
  • 1 marker
  • 1 pair of dice
  • 1 friend

What You Do:

  1. Using the marker, help your child draw a standard nine square tic-tac-toe grid on each sheet of white paper.
  2. Then, still using the marker, help her write a random number from 2 to 12 on each of the nine squares in each tic-tac-toe grid. When she’s finished, she should have 81 numbers written down.
  3. Help her arrange the papers in a three-by-three square.
  4. To play, decide who's up first.
  5. Have the first player up roll the pair of dice.
  6. Using the marker, she should then draw either an X or an O inside of a grid that has the number she rolled.
  7. The goal of the game is to gain the majority of a grid (five spaces). If a child gets the majority of a grid, she gets to flip that piece of paper over and draw either an X or an O on the back.
  8. The child that gets three flipped over sheets in a row wins.
