Children's Crafts - Noughts and Crosses

All projects are FREE, however, donations towards the upkeep of Walkabout Crafts are much appreciated. Please click below to make a donation.

Children's Crafts - Noughts and Crosses from www.walkaboutcrafts.comYou will need:
1 metre polystyrene foam, 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick
Felt pen
Plate about 8 inches (20 cm) across
Sheet of paper 8 inches (20 cm) square
Sharp knife
Candle
Poster paint
PVA glue
Chalk or ribbon

1. Using the plate as a guide, draw five circles on the polystyrene foam with a felt tip pen.

2. Fold the paper in half. With the folded corners towards you, draw a line across the two outer corners. Cut along the lines, to snip corners off.

3. Open out the paper into a cross shape. Draw five times round the cross on to the polystyrene foam and cut out each of the shapes.

4. Light the candle. Ask an adult to help you heat the blade of the knife in the candle flame for abut 5 seconds.

5. When the knife is warm, carefully cut out the noughts and crosses. Keep reheating the knife so it cuts through the polystyrene foam easily.

6. Paint the shapes with PVA glue mixed with a little poster paint. Use one colour for the noughts and another for the crosses. Leave the shapes to dry.

7. On the ground, draw a chalk grid of four lines or use lengths of ribbon or tape. Now you are ready to play!
