9 DIY Outdoor Games Your Kids Will Love

Warm weather means plenty of time outside and what better way to bond with your family and friends than by playing some fun games?

Spend quality time together crafting and enjoying these awesome activities. Here are 20 DIY outdoor games you’ll absolutely love playing.

 

Handball Contest

This game is relatively cheap and easy to make. Test your aim in a battle of tosses. No matter what your age is, you are sure to enjoy this activity.

 

Spray-Paint Twister

If you’ve ever played Twister, you know that the hardest part is when the rug slips out of place. Well, not anymore. Using a few cans of spray-paint, you can create a Twister design right on your lawn.

 

Upcycled Bottle Bowling

Keep those old water bottles, and re-purpose them into an epic summer game. With a little paint and a tennis ball, you’ll be good to go. If you are good at regular bowling, you’ll be great at this.

 

Lawn Dominoes

What could be better than dominoes? Giant outdoor dominoes! Easy to make with some timber and paint. Set them up and knock them down, or play the traditional way. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to have a blast.

 

Corn Hole

This game is always a good idea. The boards are pretty simple, and you can decorate them however you want. You can even make your own bean bags.

 

Bean Bag Toss

This game is fun on any occasion. Grab some clay pots and start crafting. You’ll be so glad for your new outdoor activity.

 

Giant Jenga

This has all the excitement of regular Jenga, but the stakes are even higher. There’s nothing like watching a huge tower topple over. All you need is some timber and a saw.

 

Tic-Tac-Toe

These ladybug and bumble bee pieces are so cute! Your children will fall in love with the classic game in a whole new way. If you have a few spare rocks in your yard, this game will hardly cost you anything.

 

Lawn Matching Game

Put your matching skills to the test with this super simple DIY game. You can make the patterns anything you want. This game will be fun for the whole family.

 

Summer means being outside, and these DIY games are perfect for the warm weather. Make your quality time even more special with a game you crafted yourself.

Size Guide & Guarantee

 

Based on averages, we believe that a "Size 2" should actually fit your child from when they are two to when they are three.  However, we do appreciate that not all children are built the same and so in the spirit of helping you make an informed choice, have included our manufacturing size guide below.

Having said that, we also appreciate that buying clothes online can be difficult and even if you measure your kids according to the chart, sometimes things just don't fit right.

 

Therefore, we offer all our customers, the right to return items from their first order in order to exchange them for different sizes at no charge. Simply contact us and we will be more than happy to help you out.

Plae Shoes Size Guide:

All sizes published on our website are US sizes. Make sure to refer to the below shoe size conversion chart if you have any questions about your child’s foot length and the corresponding size in AU, European, or UK sizing.

We know how challenging it is to get the right fit, that’s why we’ve designed a simple process you can use at home. Print out our PLAE FIT KIT and try it out.

Wellies Size Guide:

In order to ensure correct size for your feet, we have measured the internal length of each insole of each Wellington boot as shown in the table below. Please measure one of your insoles that currently fit your foot length, and match it to our measurement, to find your correct size. We have found that this is the most efficient way, as shoe sizes and measurements vary between manufacturers.

AU Size EU Size Insole Measurement cm
1 19 12.5 cm
2 20 13.5 cm
3 21 14 cm
4 22 14.5 cm
