My kids are home for the summer! I wanted to come up with some fun things to do with them as well as when friends and family come over. With a trip to the Dollar Store, some backyard games were easily made!
Fill 6 buckets with water. You can use more or less if you like.
Place three of your buckets in a pyramid shape on opposite sides of your yard. You can decide how far apart you want to place them by the age of those playing. Add some water balls and it’s up to you how many each player/team gets.
How to play:
Take turns tossing the balls back and forth. If you land in an opponents bucket that bucket is removed. The winner is determined when all of their opponents buckets are removed.
Optional – On a hot summer day, if your ball lands in the opponents bucket you can dump the bucket of water on your opponent.
Flamingo Ring Toss –
You’ll need 2 flamingos and some diving rings.
Put the flamingos together according to the package instructions.
Stake the flamingos into the ground facing each other. The distance depends on the age of those playing.
The goal is to toss the ring around the flamingo’s neck.
Take turns tossing back and forth until all the rings are on the flamingo’s neck.
