I am just going to say it. Duplo Tic Tac Toe is a genius idea.
We were setting up and playing around with ideas for our Thanksgiving activity table when the lightbulb went off. Duplo tic tac toe is a great way to play multiple rounds on the same game board.
So come join us! Grab two colors and some painter’s tape to set up today.

I wanted to make a game that can be played multiple times.
A typical game of tic tac toe uses markers and paper. But here, we like to change things up a bit. We have even played giant tic tac toe.
Here, we switched out the pens by grabbing painter’s tape (are you surprised?) and Duplos.

My five and seven-year-old love playing Tic Tac Toe.
I won’t be shy that I too am up for the challenge. I am always up for a DIY Math Game.
What I enjoy most about this simple activity is that it forces children to take a step back and strategize their next move. You can also tell when someone snoozes in between each move and then gets frustrated when losing.
Playing Tic Tac Toe helps kids:
- practice patience
- wait to take turns
- hand-eye coordination
- think ahead

You guessed it! This Duplo Tic Tac Toe activity is so easy to make!
I first put kraft paper on the tabletop but you don’t need it! You can also put the painter’s tape directly on the table.
I added the painter’s tape to make the gameboard and added two different colored Duplos for the kids to play.
That’s all you need!
