DIY Backyard Games

Looking for a quick and easy DIY backyard game for kids of all ages to enjoy throughout the summer months?


How about a fast paced game of Tic-Tac-Toe?! I put this one together last year and it’s held up pretty good ever since. I mainly used items I had around the house such as leftover tiles from another project a few years back and some decorative rocks.

Use permanent marker to clearly print the “X’s” and “O’s” on each rock.  I made seven of each letter and stored them in some dollar store finds like the above pictured tin containers.

Setting up the game is easy, choose a comfortable spot in the yard where kids and adults can sit and enjoy hours of fun playing this all time favorite and…let the games begin!
