In 2006 Disney Pixar released one of our family’s favorite movies, Cars. Disney Pixar Cars was released the same year my son was born and we watched it so many times I lost count. One of his first words was ‘Kachow!“. For the seventh week of Pixar Fest, we celebrate this seventh Pixar film with this Disney road trip game – DIY Disney Pixar Cars Tic-Tac-Toe Game.

DIY Felt Tic Tac Toe Game
- 3 – 2×6 strips of yellow felt – or color of choice
- 3 – 2×6 strips of white felt – or color of choice
- Printable Disney Pixar Cars game pieces
To make your tic-tac-toe board you’ll need two different colors of felt. Since we used Mater and Lightning McQueen game pieces, I wanted to use light colored felt to not clash. I went with yellow and white, but feel free to use whatever you have in your craft closet.
After you get your strips of felt cut, line up the first colors side by side. Then take one strip of your second color to start weaving between.
Continue weaving your second color of felt, overlapping the three strips to make a checker style board. Alternating each color of felt so you have 2″ squares of each color.
Apply a small dab of glue to each felt strip to hold into place.
Print the below sheet of Disney Pixar Cars game pieces. These Lightning McQueen and Mater tic-tac-toe pieces can be printed on white cardstock and cut using a 2″ circle hole punch.
