Now that the weather is warming up, it’s time to think about your backyard. If yours is looking a little drab, why not spruce it up with some oversized games for family fun?
I was browsing Pinterest and saw this jumbo checker board and thought, “What a great idea!” As I was looking at the related pins, I saw ideas for other games that will fit in beautifully with your yard.
When it comes to outdoor games, hopscotch has been a quick and easy game to set up. Just grab a piece of chalk and draw out your boards. But how about setting up a more permanent one with garden steps and painted-on numbers?
Chess or Checker Boards
I found a ton of checker boards! One uses alternating grass and concrete to create the board. Another uses all concrete in alternating grey. And I saw a wooden one that alternates green and white.
I didn’t just find your typical checker board. I saw quite a few Chinese checker boards, too!
