The Sharpie Paint Pens mark on the glass and ceramic surface very nicely and dry quickly. Once you've decorated your tile with a Halloween theme, paint game pieces to match and then challenge a friend to game of Tic-Tac-Toe.

Supplies Needed to Make a Tic Tac Toe Game

What you need:

What you do:

  1. Purchase the supplies you need to make this craft. The ceramic tile can be purchased at a home renovation store. We bought ours for 25 cents each. The glass gems were purchased at a dollar store and the Sharpie Paint Pens we found at a craft supply store.
  2. Prime the paint markers as directed and paint a Halloween scene on the tile. While you wait for the tile to dry, select 9 glass gems. Paint 5 gems with similar pictures, we choose jack o' lanterns and 4 gems with another picture, we choose ghosts.
  3. Using the ruler and a paint pen paint the tic-tac-toe grid over your Halloween scene. Choose a color that will stand out.

  4. Now you're ready to play tic-tac-toe with a friend. The person who goes first uses the 5 gem pieces and the other player uses 4. Take turns laying a gem on the grid. The first player to get three gems in a row, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally wins!
  5. This is a fun and easy craft idea to use at children's parties. We found the pens reduced the mess that painting usually involves.
