How to make an outdoor Tic- Tac -Toe board.
Here’s an idea that will help fill your outdoor living area with fun and games. This hand crafted Tic-Tac-Toe board is simple to make and can be as elaborate as your creative juices will allow. We’ve painted our game pieces to resemble lady bugs and bees but the possibilities are endless. Think outside the rock! Paint your pieces with flowers, initials, favorite super heroes or sports teams. The board can simply be used to add a bit of whimsy to your patio but we suggest challenging a friend to a quick game.
One 3 inch thick wooden cookie including bark (cut from a tree)
Ten small rocks similar in size and shape
Paint a Tic- Tac- Toe symbol on top of the wooden cookie using black paint
Paint 5 rocks with the same design. Paint the remaining 5 rocks with another design.
Let paint dry overnight.
Optional: Paint or spray the wooden cookie with polyurethane to help preserve it’s integrity from the elements.
Then, it’s game on!
