Ah, September, how are you already here?
I love fall and I love watching the leaves change colors, which, sadly, I already have one tree that started changing colors in early August! And the weather this weekend is definitely reflective of fall weather. So we're embracing fall, even on the light table. Here's a quick and simple light table activity inspired by fall and the classic game Tic Tac Toe.

Fall Inspired Light Table Activity for Kids: Leaf Tic Tac Toe
You'll only need two materials to try this light table activity yourself. Bonus: you can easily find both items at dollar stores! We used:
- Acrylic fall leaves - You will need two different colors, one for each player.
- Translucent cocktail stirrers (similar to these)
Use the cocktail stirrers to build a 3 x 3 grid. Instead of using Xs and Os, we used two different colors of leaves. Then simply play as if you were playing any other game of Tic Tac Toe. It's a bright and colorful version of the game, that's for sure! But J loved playing it against me over and over.
