No plans this weekend? Invite the squad over for some backyard lounging. There's no need to worry about buying your entertainment because we have everything you need to keep the gang occupied. With two versions of ring toss, some tasty takes on classics, and color-filled activities, you won't run out of outdoor game options here. Happy DIYing!
DIY Cactus Toss: Grab that cardboard out of your recycling bin and get your paints while you're at it. You have a v. trendy game to make! (via Brit + Co)
DIY Freezer Chalk Pops: Give some adults sidewalk chalk, and watch their inner child emerge. (via Hello, Wonderful)
DIY Cornhole: As a summer BBQ classic, cornhole is a game that only requires moderately good aim *and* can be played while holding a glass of wine. (via Brit + Co)
DIY Giant Chess Set: A giant version of a tabletop game is how you live your best life. Stretch out on the grass under a tree, or bring this one to the beach. You won't be bored (get it?). (via Paper & Stitch)
DIY Flamingo Ring Toss: For a more permanent setup, ditch the wooden sticks and invest in pretty-in-pink flamingo planters. (via Sugar & Cloth)
DIY Donut Twister: Proving that donuts are acceptable substitutes for many things in life, this party game will get the crowd moving. (via Studio DIY)
DIY Painted Rocks Dominoes: This probably isn't a very convenient game to move around, but it sure is a colorful one. (via The House That Lars Built)
DIY Giant Jenga: Speaking of an amped-up gathering, nothing breaks the tension like testing balance, dexterity, and sobriety. (via Brit + Co)
DIY Tabletop Tic-Tac-Toe: As if the trendy design wasn't enough, this version does not require a pencil and paper. (via A Beautiful Mess)
DIY Mini Donut BINGO: Ditch the giant markers and go for powdered treats instead. Your waistline may not thank you, but everyone else will. (via Aww Sam)
