DIY Summer Games for a Fun-Filled Summer
But first, check out this DIY Chore Chart by Meg! Here’s a clever way to keep the kids busy BEFORE the playtime begins.
1. DIY Backyard Bowling
It is also a great way to practice your pin-squashing skills without spending money at your local alley.
2. DIY Backyard Ker-Plank Game
This backyard Ker-Plank game will give children and adults a fun challenge as they try to remove the sticks without any balls falling out! I’m pretty sure players will have lots of hours challenging each other to see who wins!
3. Dunk Bucket
4. Bean Bag Ladder Toss
Easy to set up and easy to play. All you need is your household ladder and a few sheets of paper! Kids will enjoy throwing bean bags between the rungs of the ladder to earn as many points as possible.
5. DIY Mud Run
6. Blanket Run
Grab a blanket and a partner who is under 4 feet tall. Attempt to pull your partner across the lawn as fast as you possibly can. This blanket run game is simple and fun for a large family get-together!
7. DIY Yard Yahtzee
8. Watch Your Step
This fun yet simple competition involves players having a balloon tied to their ankles. While players run around the play area they will try to burst each other’s balloons using only their feet.
The players who can keep their balloon the longest time is the winner.
9. Outdoor Art
Every kid’s dream: getting to draw all over the walls! Place this huge painted chalkboard up on an outside fence and let your kids be blown with their artful creations!
10. Water Balloon Dodgeball

11. Frozen T-Shirt Race
A perfect game on a very hot day. Soak a couple of t-shirt in water and put them inside plastic bags, and then keep those shirts in the freezer. Once frozen you can hold your race. The first person who can unfold and wear the Frozen t-shirt wins!
12. DIY Lawn Twister
All members of the family will be ready for the challenge. Let see who best in twisting ones way!
13. DIY Lawn Matching Game
