Friday Favorites–Playing Outside

It was raining like crazy here about a week ago.  Living somewhere it rains as much as it does here, that’s saying a lot.  We’re hoping for a long streak of sunshine, especially with Father’s Day coming this weekend.  If we get it, there’s all kinds of fun to be had here.

My husband built something similar to this Corn Hole Game from DIY Network a few years ago.  What we didn’t know is that the American Cornhole Association establishes the regulations.  I am not making that up.  I hope the Cornhole police don’t come confiscate it.

Maybe you only need a game temporarily, for a party or until the kids get tired of it.  Try this Outdoor Twister Game from Sassy Style.  Gone as soon as you mow.


If you’re looking for an outdoor Twister game that’s a little more permanent, try this one from Design Sponge.


This Sunken Trampoline from Little Green Fingers is really smart, and it seems safer than the typical version.  I might even be able to jump on it without breaking a body part.


This Ladder Ball Game from Just Build Stuff looks like a good project for my son.


This Passing Practice Game from Family Fun doesn’t take a lot of materials, looks fun and folds up to store nicely. 


I love the idea behind this Game Time Picnic Quilt from Sew, Mama, Sew.  It kinda makes me want to learn how to play chess.


After some thought, I’ve decided that no, I am not too old for this Beach in the Backyard from Better Together.


I came across two different outdoor games from This Old House, and they both look fun.  The first is this Pipe Ball Lawn Game.


They also share how to build this Shishkaball Ball-Drop Game that I think I must have.


Here’s hoping we all need sunscreen this weekend!
