Tic Tac Toe

I can’t tell you how much fun it was to teach Ava how to play tic tac toe! Even at 4 yrs old! I tried teaching her while out for dinner with the paper and crayons they give us, but she just¬†wasn’t really interested and quickly moved on to something else. I think involving her in the crafting of the board and painting the rocks really captured her attention – enough that she wanted to play. Although, I think letting her win is what really piqued her interest!

Tic Tac Toe 2


  • 10 Rocks
  • Acrylic Paints
  • Accessories to decorate rocks
  • Wood round with bark or similar platter
  • Paintbrushes
  • Wax Paper or Newspaper (for drying the painting rocks)


  1. Ensure the surface of the wood is clean. Wash and dry the rocks if necessary. Ensure the rocks are completely dry before painting.
  2. Paint one or both sides of the board using a color of your choice. Set aside to dry.
  3. Divide the rocks into two teams. Paint one team one color scheme, the other team another color scheme. Set aside to dry.
  4. Accessorize the rocks with feather, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, whatever you like!
  5. Once the board is dry, draw the lines for the game with a Sharpie or other thin-tipped marker.


  1. When using acrylic paints, you may have to apply multiple coats.
  2. If you’d like to keep the board outside, spray the rocks and board with a clear or gloss protective sealer before adding any accessories.
