DIY Summer Lawn Games

Searching for some fun summer lawn games lately, and finally found some really interesting ones on This Old House. The best part, they are so easy to make, with materials you find around the house, in the basement, or garage, and can be built with just basic tools. Love it! Next summer, once little caterpillar can understand rules, we will have tons of fun! I probably should start accumulate materials and get building soon. 6 months winter is just what I need! Check out these videos, and you will be surprised how much fun you can build with your own hands.

Pipe Ball Lawn Game
Cornhole Game
Ricochet Game
Ladder Golf Game
Kubb (Viking Chess) Game

Summer is almost end now, but if you living in the higher number zones, you should start building. These games are much healthier than the computer ones, easy exercises, fresh air, quality family time, and endless fun.

I don’t know why I’ve never considered these games before now. I’m going to have to see what the bride thinks about this one. We had a lot of fun with this game called rollors at my sister’s wedding. http://www.rollors.com is where we got it from. I just don’t want to my sister and sister-n-law to have an issue with a copycat game. Any other suggestions?

Outdoor activities just wouldn't be complete without a game of Rollers. My friends and family have so much fun playing during gatherings, It is easy to learn and makes for lots of laughs and entertainment. You can get it at www.rollors.com or http://www.amazon.com/Rollors-MEROL01-ROLRY/dp/B004SJMKYS
