Flower Bed Tic-Tac-Toe

My boys love to play tic-tac-toe.  We often play while we are at restaurants waiting on our food.  I think that they like to play because it is something that they both know how to play and they can challenge Mommy or Daddy to a quick game.  Now I can add this to the list of things that I can send them outside to do.  And they like to do anything that involves dirt!
Supplies:
  • 9 3x3 Tumbled Natural Stone Tile
  • 10 Rocks
  • Black Acrylic Paint
Level out the desired spot in your rock garden or flower bed.  Place the 9 tiles in three rows of three.  Spread the dirt that you moved while leveling over top of the tiles and gently press the dirt in the grid.  I stepped on the tiles to push them down a little more.  Brush the dirt off the tiles.  Paint 5 rocks with X's and paint 5 rocks with O's.  Then challenge someone to a friendly game of Flower Bed Tic Tac Toe!
