DIY Backyard Game Ideas
Outdoor games are essential for backyard parties and also for when you are enjoying a weekend afternoon in your backyard with your family. We play games like checkers and Yahtzee in our new pergola.
We also play yard games like my favorite, ladder ball (sometimes called ladder golf). It’s easy to make a ladder ball set yourself. Click here to see my tutorial.
