30 DIY Yard Games to try this Summer

Here are 30 terrific ideas for entertaining in your backyard.

Summer is my favorite time of the year. It’s the time for family fun, cook outs, festivals, bon fires, and more. Last year we built a wonderful bar in our back yard. It’s a great spot to entertain, but it is lacking in entertainment, other than the fire pit. I wanted some ideas of fun family games that would could play, so I went on a search. Here is a roundup of 30 awesome ideas I wanted to share with you. I know I can’t try all 30, but it will be hard to choose because they are all so great.
