Peppermint Forest

Peppermint Forest

What You'll Need:

  • Poster board cut into 8 x 8 squares
  • Licorice twists (like Twizzlers)
  • Peppermint and Spearmint candies
  • Table and chairs for each guest
  • Clear Tape

Before the Party:
  1. Tape the licorice in the shape of a tic-tac-toe board to the poster board.
  2. Create enough tic-tac-toe boards so there are enough for all the players to play at once in teams of two. For instance, if there are 10 players, you will need five boards.
  3. Place five wrapped mints of each color next to each board.

At the Party:
  1. Begin the Peppermint Forest Tic-Tac-Toe Championship by seating the guests in teams of two.
  2. In case they have never played tic-tac-toe, explain to them the rules. If there are an odd group of kids, have an adult fill the empty seat.
  3. Have everyone complete the first round of tic-tac-toe until the winners are declared. In case of a tie, both players are winners.
  4. Start the second round until the winners are declared.
  5. Continue playing in teams of two until the Tic-Tac-Toe Champion is crowned!
  6. Award the winner a big bag of Twizzlers candy!
