Tic-Tac-Toe Relay

Tic Tac Toe with Hula Hoops

What You Will Need: 

  • 9 Hula hoops. If you do not have hula hoops, you can be creative to use items around the home such as string, cord or tape to make the playing area. 
  • 3 similar coloured items for Team 1 and another 3 similar coloured items for Team 2 to mark the spots on the tic- tac- toe playing area. (Can use flags, towels, bean bags, etc.) 

How to play:  

  • Set up the hula hoops (or other items from home) in a 3 by 3 square . 
  • Form 2 even teams in lines. 
  • On ‘GO’, teams will race one at a time and place an item in a hoop trying to get 3 in a row (Tic-Tac-Toe). If Tic-Tac-Toe is unsuccessful within those 3 turns, the next players running will remove ONE of their items to an empty hoop until Tic-Tac-Toe is successful. 

Adaptations (optional):  

  • Players may hop, skip, gallop, etc. instead of running.
