In the summer, the days are longer and warmer and that is the time to be outside doing fun activities with your family and friends.
You can modify these games for small and larger yards.
1. Backyard Miniture Golf: “Create a 9-hole course across the terrain of your yard adding fun challenges throughout by incorporating the natural elements of your landscape.”
2. Table Checkers: “A vintage printed tablecloth can provide the perfect back drop then gathering up buttons in two different colors and you are ready to play.”
3. Soda Crate Ring Toss: “Arrange old-school glass bottles in a divided soda crate and rack up points by tossing plastic or rope rings around the bottle necks.”
