24. DIY Water Blob
This is better than a slip n’ slide! Although it’s “water play”, it’s completely dry (unless you add water to the top). I can image it gets pretty warm towards the end of the day, so it could even be fun on a cooler spring day. I would even try filling it with a bit of glitter and/or food coloring!

25. DIY Plinko
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? The Price is Right! This could be an interesting project that the entire family would enjoy. If you like the circus, why not bring a little bit of the fun to your very own backyard?
26. Balloon Dart Board
I say, let the kids blow up the balloons and you staple them to the board! For a party, you could fill each balloon with a number that wins a corresponding prize. Just pick out balloon colors that match the holiday or party theme. Get the full instructions here.
