Play your favorite paper game---with real people! Create a life-size, outdoor version of this popular past time with amazing Crayola Sidewalk Paint.

  • 1.

    Get together with your friends for outdoor fun! Ask nine friends to each bring a recycled, light-colored shirt. With Crayola® Fabric Markers, draw five Xs and five Os on the shirts. Crayola® Fabric Markers stain clothing and surfaces, CLOSE ADULT SUPERVISION IS REQUIRED. Before you put on the shirts, designs must be ironed by an adult. Set iron to cotton setting and iron on the reverse side using a back and forth motion for 4 minutes. You could also place the shirts in the dryer for 30 minutes on the hottest setting.

  • 2.

    While your shirts are drying, ask an adult to help you find a safe, large outdoor area on which to paint your Tic-Tac-Toe grid. Crayola Sidewalk Paints are designed for use on concrete or asphalt sidewalks and driveways. Test a small area to make sure the paint does not stain. Use on surfaces at least 6 months old. Make sure you ask permission before you paint.

  • 3.

    Use your Sidewalk Paints and the 4-inch roller in the kit to paint a giant Tic-Tac-Toe grid. Make sure the grid is large enough for you and your friends to stand in.

  • 4.

    Decorate the grid and your playing area with the So Big® Brush if you wish. Air-dry paint completely.

  • 5.

    Divide into two teams, Xs and Os. Take turns stepping into one of the spaces on the grid. Team members remain in their grids until one team gets three of the same letter in a row. Teams can win horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

    Within 2 weeks, wash off the Sidewalk Paint. To remove, wash surface with the water pressure from a garden hose. Light brushing with a broom or nylon brush may be necessary to remove some paint.
