Portable Tic Tac Toe

I wanted to make something for my nephew for part of his Easter gift but I know he doesn't get too thrilled over yet another pair of cargo pants or shorts so I turned to Pinterest for some ideas.

It's just a little sack with a Tic Tac Toe board sewn on top and some glass marbles decorated with Mod Podge and scrapbooking paper.

He's going on a vacation next week with his family and has to travel by plane.  I thought this would be something he could throw in his carry on and pass the time with.

I have to admit my first instinct was to use pretty flowery paper and Sparkle Mod Podge, but I held back and I think I came up with a very boyish version of what I wanted.

Check out the original post idea here from CreativeFamilyFun.

Thanks for such a great idea! We are going on vacation in June and I am always looking for little things that I can use to keep my 4-yr-old daughter happy on the 7 1/2 hour drive to the beach. I just finished making her a tote bag for her art supplies and I think I'm going to need to add this to it as well!
