Valentine’s Day Tic-Tac-Toe Wooden Cubes  


A tic-tac-toe Valentine's Day wooden cube project is perfect for the occasion because it can be a thoughtful gift or a game to play with a loved one.  

The game itself is a fun and interactive activity that can be enjoyed together, making it a perfect way to celebrate the day. It's exciting for friends and family because it's a classic game that can be enjoyed by all ages, and the handmade wooden cubes add a unique and special touch to the experience. 

With just a few materials and a little creativity, you can create a game that brings people together. 

We recommend using our wood cubes linked here. To create the tic-tac-toe wood cubes, start by gathering wooden blocks, pink and red paint, and a paintbrush.  

Begin by painting a traditional tic-tac-toe grid on one side of each wooden block, using a contrasting color for the lines.  

Then, paint X's and O's on the remaining sides of the blocks to create the game pieces.

It's important to allow the paint to dry before playing. Enjoy! 

Make sure to wait for the paint to dry before playing the game.  

Once the paint has dried, you can enjoy playing with this simple DIY project!
