50 PLUS DIY Outdoor Summer Activities!

I love encouraging my kids to play outside in the summer. Some days it's all about the water and keeping cool and hanging out at the pool. BUT I love having things at the house to keep them happy and let some of that energy out too, so today I wanted to share a collection of DIY Summertime activities that you can do outside!

The first one is a DIY Large Checkers game I made a couple years ago. (The original post is here.)


It's so fun and great to take with you anywhere! All I used was some different kinds of wood branches to make the wood chips and some bandanas to make the checkerboard with. Perfect for those Fourth of July picnics, camping, and at home in the backyard OR inside on those super hot days!




The next one is one we are going to make this summer. It's a water blog from Gingerscnapcrafts. It looks like soooo much fun and she gives a great tutorial on how to make one here.
