If you’d like to add a fall spin to the old tic tac toe game, you can create your own apple tree tic tac toe game which is perfect for fall. This game is timeless and my son and I both try to outwit the other to win.

We play this on the ground with sticks while we’re camping and it’s nice to add a color variation to the game to make it even more fun. My daughter is a huge fan of games and she can’t be left out either, she chooses to be apples because she hates bugs and small creatures alike.

I’m not a fan of worms either but apples just made me think of worms so we just went with it. This was created using markers but you could also paint them.

I know I always like to keep my paper plates and I have a ton saved for crafts that may arise and I also use them to hold paint because they’re thick enough to hold the paint and easy enough to throughout after the mess.

The great part about this Apple Tree Tic Tac Toe game is that it means that the family is going to be playing along together and having a great time. I can’t tell you how many times we played this game, over and over again.

But every time that we play, we laugh, giggle, and bond in a way that I’m so thankful and grateful for. We love making memories playing games and this is one of our favorites to do.

It’s also special to play because it’s a homemade family game that we’ve created together! We didn’t buy it off the shelf at the store or anything like that so we love being able to make it and play it.

You can even glue a small letter envelope to the back of the tree top to hold the apples and worm pieces. I like to keep sets of games together in a large Ziploc bag so you don’t lose any of the pieces and you don’t tear the game pieces.
