Nature Noughts and Crosses

This game is perfect for the garden!Noughts and crosses game made from twigs and stones

The aim of the game is to make a line of three noughts or crosses whilst trying to block your opponent from doing the same. The first player to get three in a row is the winner.

You will need:

  • 4 sticks, about 40cm long
  • Something to bind them together (string, long grass, climbing plant)
  • 10 short, thin sticks
  • 5 pebbles or cones

Step 1

Find four sticks that are about the same length and arrange them in a crisscross pattern, two vertically and two horizontally. Tie each join where the sticks cross each other.

Step 2

Snap thinner lengths of sticks into 10 short pieces. Make a cross by taking two sticks and binding them together around the middle.

Step 3

Twist the sticks so they form an ‘x’ shape and tie the binding across the other way to hold in place, finishing with a knot. Collect your pebbles or cones and you are ready to play!
