Kirkwood Library’s Kids Activity of the Day – Rock and Sticks Tic Tac Toe

Draw a tic tac toe board.

Have one player gather 5 rocks and the other player gather 5 sticks small enough to fit into the squares on your board. These are your markers.

Players take turns putting their markers in the spaces. The player who succeeds in placing three of their markers in a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row is the winner.
