Decide which festive counters you are going to use
Sand down any rough edges on the counters or your board.
Create your festive counters. You’ll need two sets, with five of each counter. Choose from:
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.
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.
Paint pebbles to use as counters.
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.
