The sun is out and so are you! Summer is a perfect time to get outside and enjoy times with your friends and family. If you’re planning a summer get-together at your house, here are 5 DIY game ideas to use right in your backyard.

1. DIY Outdoor Twister

We found this awesome idea from Sassy Style. What’s great about this game is that it won’t hurt your grass;  you’ll just mow up the game when you’re finished!

Momma Did It came up with Glow-In-The-Dark ring toss. You can find many glow-in-the-dark necklaces for less than $1 at most craft stores.

Use inexpensive pool noodles to make a croquet course in your backyard. Great idea, Inner Child Fun! Depending on how big your croquet loops are, you could even use this as an obstacle course–the possibilities are endless!
