DIY Outdoor Games
I am all about being outside.  I love playing with plants.  I love eating meals outdoors.  I just love spending as much time outside as possible.  Last year I shared How to make 3 Awesome DIY Outdoor Games but I didn’t share them until early fall time – so today I am going to share them all together in this post DURING the summer!

You may be thinking, “Okay… I like the outside, too.  But what outdoor games can I play?”  There are so many fun outdoor game options.  I went for simple large scaled wooden games; dice, dominos and three foot long pick-up sticks!


And you didn’t think I could share three fun summer DIY games without sharing the adorable SUMMER GAMES tote bag I made to carry them all in – ha.

Next up is the game of Dice.  Now, I will be completely honest… I have no idea what to play with dice.  However, it does not stop my family at all from rolling these monster sized dice around and making up all kinds of games!

Dominos are a huge hit with my kids.  Not only do they love simply playing outdoor dominos, but they love setting up the dominos on their side and then knocking them over.

And lastly, a childhood classic – Pickup Sticks!  I just played this one with my son last weekend.  And after we got done playing the game (I won, just saying) it turned into a mini sword battle.  Because when you have 3′ long pickup sticks… you have no other choice than to battle it out just a bit.

My daughter on the other hand, likes to use the pickup sticks as poles for her imaginary tent, when she is done playing the game.
