Yard Yahtzee

Yard Yahtzee is pretty easy to make and fun to play. It is one of the easier games to super-size and make into your new family’s favorite yard game. All you need is 5 large wooden blocks, a wood burning tool, its circle wood burning attachment, a couple of clothes pins, wood glue, aluminum clamps and an aluminum bucket to throw your new dice. You can find wooden blocks at any craft store such as Michaels or even cut your own out of wood from home depot. You are really just looking for 4x4 piece of square wood block.

Lawn Twister

Lawn Twister is an easy and quick game to set up. All you need is a large box to cut a circle out of the bottom. Use this as a stencil to spray paint the circles onto your lawn. Be sure to use contractors marking paint so that it will wash right off and won’t ruin your grass. Then create your spinning board and you are all set to play a fun game of twister. It is fun to play on the lawn because you don’t have to worry about the Twister sheet slipping all around outside on the grass. http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2014/07/lawn-twister-creative-family-reunion-ideas.html

Yard Dominos

Yard Dominos is another great game to supersize and play on your lawn. You will need to purchase two 10 ft. 1x4 board and one 8 ft. 1x4 board. This is so that you can make 28 dominos that are 7” long and 3.5” wide. After you cut your pieces, stain the wood to a color you prefer. You can use white adhesive large dots to complete your project. Add a sealer to make sure the dots remain intact and wood remain that beautiful color.

Giant Ker Plunk

Ker Plunk was such a fun game to play when we were young that it is even more fun to play as an adult supersized! This project takes a bit of extra work but the outcome well worth it. You first need to create a wooden base with an opening out the bottom. Then use wire netting to make the tub and a wire to hold it in place. Bamboo garden stakes work best as sticks and ball pit balls are great to use as well. Each player gets a turn out to take a bamboo stick out. The person who makes all the balls fall loses!
