Make your own Easter Tic-Tac-Toe game! We used bunnies and carrots....but you could use eggs, chicks, crosses, tulips - whatever sprinkles your donut!
A couple of round detail brushes
Rocks - We got ours from Dollar Tree, but any rocks work! Larger rocks will be easier for small hands to add the details.
You can order the cute burlap bags on Amazon or your local craft store. We recommend a 4x6 or 5x7 bag. If you opt for the bag just make sure your rocks fit!
Black Sharpie marker or black acrylic paint pen
STEP 1: PAINT
The rocks we purchased were black. If yours aren't and you want them black (or any color for that matter), you will need to paint them first. Just allow them to dry completely before adding the design.
Bunnies: Using WHITE, paint a circle for the head towards the bottom of your rock. Add two tall pointed ovals on top for the ears.
Use PINK to paint a stripe inside each ear, and an upside-down triangle for the nose.
Allow to dry.
Carrots: Using ORANGE, paint a long upside-down triangle on the bottom half of your rock.
Using GREEN with a dot of WHITE, lightly dab paint in a spray of about 3-4 carrot tops.
Allow to dry.
STEP 2: THE BAG
Using BLACK, paint or draw two horizontal lines and two vertical lines to make your tic-tac-toe board. Set aside to dry
The bag is fun because you can keep your rocks in the bag, but if you don't have a bag you can draw a game board on any surface.
STEP 3: FINAL TOUCHES
Using either a fine detail brush and BLACK paint OR a black Sharpie/Paint Marker:
Lightly outline the carrots, adding a few horizontal lines in the carrot bodies. Do not outline the carrot tops.
Add two dots for eyes and 3 whiskers on each side of the nose. Outline the head and ears if desired.
Allow paint to dry completely, then paint over the tops of the rocks with Mod Podge. Allow Mod Podge to dry!
And that's it! Enjoy!
