Make this simple set of tic tac toe with your kids this weekend, by Riot Art & Craft.

You will need:

  • 9 smooth pebbles of similar sizes.
  • Red and green acrylic paint
  • Clear matt varnish
  • Alphabet stencil
  • Graphite Pencil
  • Paint Brush Flat size 1/8 inch

Step 1. Select & Stencil

Select nine pebbles of similar size, flat sides will be easiest to work with. Use the capital letters from your stencil, and draw an “O” on one side of each pebble, and an “X” on the other.  You should be able to see the grey lead whether the rock is light or dark.

Step 2. Paint the Pebbles

Paint around all the “O”s first with green.  Once dry turn over and do the same for the “X”s in red. Finally paint the rocks with varnish.

  • What a simple idea. And when the kids get tired of it, the stones can be returned to the garden! And best of all it’s all natural


  • How cool! I’ve only ever drawn the grid on paper and used pens or pencils to add the noughts and crosses. This is such a better way to play it. The kids can help make it as well as play it.


  • If you live in a stony area with lots of flat pebbles/small stones you could do the alphabet with extra of letters used multiples of those used a lot. Children could do their own and other names.


  • Its amazing what you can make with next to nothing


  • Oh cool, an outside noughts and crosses game. After this, they can draw up a hopscotch grid and keep on playing


  • Cute idea thanks for sharing!
