On the other 5 rocks, you’ll make an X and sprinkle with the red glitter. (The X may come out better if you make one line at a time and let dry for a few minutes in between so the glue doesn’t run together). Again tap of the excess glittter and let dry.

STEP 3: Make Tic Tac Toe board

On the round plaque, paint on a Tic Tac Toe board with the black paint. You will need to paint two straight horizontal lines and two straight vertical lines. Wait for the paint to dry
