It’s hot here today…..over 100 degrees. Here are few options for indoor and outdoor games you can switch around throughout the year depending on the weather!

I made Boo a hopscotch on the carpet today:

I used washi tape since I have an abundance of it….it’s so colorful and is a light adhesive so it won’t leave any residue on your carpet:

For outdoors, you can spray paint games onto the grass. They will stay there for a week or more depending on how fast your grass grows.  These are games we spray painted for Boo’s Krispy Kreme Donut birthday party in February:

I made large stencils to spray paint the doughnuts and games on the grass. Hours of entertainment for the cost of 2 cans of paint:

    What a great idea! Did this damage your grass at all? I can hear my hubby in a panic about the grass dying already!

      Ours didn’t die! I was worried….but it just grew out and the paint was chopped off when the grass was mowed.
