DIY Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe Board Tutorial
- wooden edged square board (Michael’s Craft Store)
- black paint
- paint brush
- orange pipe cleaners
- assorted plastic pumpkins in both white and orange
- hot glue, glue gun (for parents)
1. Begin by applying two coats of black paint to the wood board. Allow the paint to dry well between coats for best coverage.
2. Once the paint is dry, you can start applying the pipe cleaners to help make your grid. We simply ran the pipe cleaners from one end of the board to the other and bent it over the edges. Use a dab of hot glue to press the end into place and secure it.
3. Continue this process so that you have two pipe cleaners running in each direction of the board. This will create your nine space grid.
4. The pumpkins can now be used to play. You want several white pumpkins and several orange so you don’t get your pieces confused.
5. Play as you would any ordinary game of tic tac toe, with orange being the x and white being the o.
