15. DIY Dunk Bucket
This is a backyard activity you’d probably want to save for summer, but just imagine how fun this would be! The construction behind it would take a little bit of effort, but definitely well worth the time spent. This could be one you save for a 4th of July party! I’m sure you’d have plenty of kids volunteer to get wet.
16. Pool Noodle Olympics
These things are so versatile! You can bend them, cut them, and shape them into just about anything. Pool noodles are also really light weight and cheap, which is why pool noodle olympics are a must for every backyard party.
17. Giant Pick-Up Sticks
This classic game has never been better! What’s a better way to get the kids to spend a little more time outdoors and learn a game that you played in a your childhood? I personally just like the idea of jumbo games, but I’d also like to freshen my pick-up stick skills in a BIG way (no pun intended). Get the instructions here.
