1. Yard Twister
My first thought when I saw this was “FUN”! But then, I thought “Wouldn’t the paint ruin your lawn?”. Turns out you can use ground marking spray to prevent damaging your grass, and within a few weeks it grows out. Hadn’t thought of that! You could make the board as big as you’d like so that a lot of people could play at once. And, you can customize the size of the dots depending on the age of the players; smaller dots are better for little hands and feet. Get the full instructions here.
3. Giant Jenga
With just a couple of 2 x 4 boards you can make your very own Giant Jenga Set! You wouldn’t even need a saw because most lumbar yards and home improvement stores will cut the boards to any length you want. I love how this set was painted on the ends in pretty spring colors! Believe it or not, this game has become so popular you can actually purchase a Giant Jenga Set for about $100 on Amazon (just in case you’re not much of a do-it-yourselfer).
