Yard Games

Summer means picnics, barbecues, and yard games. Sure, there is the normal bocce ball, croquet, ladder golf, and the newer popular game, Kan Jam. But you definitely want to check out these fun ideas to keep your summer party guests entertained.

{1} Ring Toss: I’ll start with another classic. This is as simple as placing glass bottles in a short crate and decorated embroidery hoops for the rings. If you’re fe
eling ambitious, you can paint the bottles and crate
like this idea.ring toss

{2} Kerplunk: This game is simple and colorful! The balls should be pretty cheap to purchase. For wet summer fun, use water balloons. If you want a smaller version, a tomato cage works but if you want a larger one like this you’ll need something larger.

{3} Lawn Twister: Just like the board game but outside and without the hassle of the crinkly mat! It should be a softer fall onto the grass than some other areas. Spray paint some small circles on the grass and watch the fun.

{4} Bean Bag Ladder Toss: This is a fun twist on an old favorite. Grab a bunch of bean bags and label the rungs of a ladder with point values. Have people toss the bean bags and try to land them on the ladder rungs!

{5} Koob: This game from the Vikings is easy to set up and fun to play. At it’s most basic level, this game is throwing sticks at blocks. To set up, place 5 koobs (or soldiers) in a line on either side of the square playing area. Place one block in the middle and name it the king. You must knock over all of the opposing sides koobs before trying to go after the king. For more extensive instructions, follow this link: http://www.mollenliving.com/playKOOB%20Manual.pdf
