Decide which festive counters you are going to use and
sand down any rough edges on the counters or your board.
Use a thick marker or paint to draw out your board onto a large piece of wood, or onto card.
You need 4 lines – 2 horizontal and 2 vertical – to make your 3 x 3 grid.
Alternatively: use sticks or string to mark your grid directly on the ground. You could make it really big and use log stools (and children) as counters.
It will take 1-2 hours to paint your counters and make your board - next time you can play the game!
Instructions for playing noughts & crosses (also known as Tic Tac Toe)
Take turns placing your counters on the board – try to be the first person to get a straight line of three.
