Hogwarts Noughts and Crosses Busy Bag

Yes, I know noughts and crosses can be played with just a pencil and paper, but it is still fun to make up a Hogwarts Noughts and Crosses busy bag. Plus EC was really happy with it, which makes it totally worthwhile. I had originally planned to just make Slytherin and Hufflepuff playing pieces but added the other two in for good measure.

Make sure you follow my Harry Potter board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

* You’ll need 5 corks for each house you do.

Start by painting your corks the colours of the house they represent. Red for Gryffindor, green for Slytherin, yellow for Hufflepuff, and blue for Ravenclaw.

Once the paint has dried draw or paint the stripes and house letter.

To make the playing board use a square of fabric and using a backstitch sew the playing grid. I wanted to use a black piece of fabric, however short of cutting up one of my t-shirts white was all that I had.

EC and I love to play noughts and crosses. He is actually really good and certainly gives me a run for my money. We have recently started playing it before bedtime as a nice quiet activity.
