No . . . well, that might be because I did this gameboard months ago . . . promising at the end of that tutorial that I would be posting a game piece tutorial soon. (Here's the tutorial for the gameboard.) Apparently, in my world, soon is a relative thing. For example, "soon" could mean two months later.
So . . . here are the game pieces that I did - on one side you can play tic tac toe with the bat and ball pieces and on the other side you can practice pattern and shape recognition the shape pieces.
Here's what you need:
~felt in various colors
Here's what you do:
1) Cut out circles or preferred game piece shape to fit the size of your tic tac toes spaces . . . two circles per piece for ten pieces . . . 20 circles total.
3) Use felt glue to attach these five circles to five other circles.
4) Cut out bat shapes from felt and use embroidery thread to attach to another five circles. (I used a pattern that I hand drew for bat shapes.) Use embroidery thread to sew these five circles to the remaining five.
5) Cut out shapes in and use felt glue to attach to opposite sides of bats and balls.
