Here's Isaak's latest post on ParentSavvy.com.
I priced out tiles at Home Depot, and found they didn't sell very many small tiles. In particular they didn't have any individual.
I bought a mat of them for $3. That was cheaper than buying single tiles! Isaak plans on using the rest for something else.
They were easy to rip off! I already used the mesh that held them all together for another project. Not very much goes to waste in the Apel house.
Here's what the tiles look like off their mesh:
We had 10 tiles. Enough for 5 X's and 5 O's.
The standard circle magnets fit these tiles perfectly. We had just the right amount, which is 10.
I got Glass Paint to review on facebook. I'm not so sure I'm in love with it. I do want to try to paint something on a hard canvas, put glass on it, and paint lines on the glass. I find that this paint is goopy, somewhat transparent, and dries fast! Maybe there's another brand that's better?
Otherwise for this project if I had to do it again I'd go with enamel paints. They can be found at craft stores in the model section. You would just need 2 colors + a black.
The good thing about a set over individual enamel paints is that there is a variety of colors!
Remember the X's and O's will be black.
The X tiles painted:

Isaak loves hot gluing anything! He took charge and glued the magnets on the backs of the tiles. Check to make sure you have them all on the right side. Two didn't stick to the fridge, so he had to reglue them.
Time to Play!
Make a Tic Tac Toe Paper, stick to the fridge and play!
It was fun! What game would you like to make?
