We love sitting out by the fire, having water balloon fights, and a myriad of other fun backyard games. In recent years, I’ve also made it my personal mission to create unique new games for our family to play. That’s how this fun new game came to be and we already love it!
- 5 Two Packs of Microwave Plates from the Dollar Tree
- Duct Tape
- 2 Different Spray Paint Colors (I chose this teal and this pink)
- Spray Sealant
- Spray Chalk Paint
- (Optional) Tote Bag for Storage
First, remove all of the packaging from your plates and divide them into 2 groups of five.
Next, use your duct tape to add X’s to the back of 5 of your plates.
Then, spray the back of the set of 5 X plates with one of your spray paint colors.
Set the X plates aside to dry and add a circle of duct tape to the back of your remaining 5 plastic plates.
After you have taped your O plates, spray the bottom of them with your second spray paint color.
Allow your paint to dry completely before moving on.
Step 7 (Optional)
After your spray paint has dried, flip your plates over and spray the opposite side of your plates. Do this in the corresponding colors.
While your second coat of paint dries, paint a large tic-tac-toe board directly onto your yard with your spray chalk paint.
Once your plates are dried, pull off the tape and seal them with your spray sealant to keep the paint from chipping during play and storage.
Allow your sealant to dry completely.
Now it’s time to play!
The rules of DIY giant backyard frisbee tic-tac-toe are the same as traditional tic-tac-toe with one twist. You can use your frisbees to knock another players frisbee from the space you need. The only exception is, of course, if the player has achieved 3 in a row. The first player to get 3 in a row is the winner!
Once you’re done with your DIY giant backyard frisbee tic-tac-toe game, use a tote bag to store the frisbees and spray chalk paint. This is the perfect way to keep it together and organized until the next time you play.
This game is also easy to transport. Simply grab your tote bag and go. The spray chalk paint doesn’t hurt the grass and washes away easily. It makes this the perfect game for barbecues, family reunions, and other outdoor parties!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
