Playing games with your toddlers and preschoolers is a great way to have fun as well as to help them to learn to take turns and share.
This free printable game is ideal for any little one that loves to explore outer space.
So here you go another fantastic space activity for toddlers and preschoolers our Space Themed Tic Tac Toe Game that you and they can play together.
FREE Printable Space Game for KIds
Tic Tac Toe was one of the first games we taught the kids how to play.
It’s easy to play and before they understand the rules you can have a lot of fun winning and losing alongside them.
We love packaging these up in a busy bag and giving it to them for flights or road trips so that they can play together.
As well as using it within a week of space themed activities and fun you can do at home.
Space Tic Tac Toe
We love how this version of our space tic tac toe games is Aliens vs Astronauts.
We used our Epson EcoTank ET-7700 printer for a great high quality print that’s eco friendly and printed on card so that the game is harder wearing.
If you want you can also laminate the game so that it’s even harder wearing and especially useful if you are going to be using with more than one child.

Playing the Game
Once printed it is time to play.
When playing with toddlers and preschoolers remember they don’t know the tricks to get a draw each time so let them win more than they lose.
However, it’s all about taking turns and thinking ahead.
A great simple problem solving activity for your toddlers and preschoolers to do!
