This homemade tic-tac-toe game is adorable and so easy to make. It will make a great addition to your garden this Spring.

What you’ll need:

  • 10 small river rocks (find them or buy some)
  • Paint (colours you wish)
  • Wooden stump (or anything else you find you could use as the board)


  1. Choose 2 colours or designs that you wish your rocks to be and paint 5 of each and leave to dry. If this game will be left outside make sure you use outdoor paint.
  2. Draw, paint or scratch tic-tac-toe lines on your stump.
  3. You’re ready to play!

This is such a simple game to make yourself and the kids can help paint the rocks with you. I think the game would make a fabulous homemade present to give someone special too.

Do your kids like playing tic-tac-toe?
