Step 7

Now pull out your fabric and cut it into 6 rectangles that are 3 inches by 2 inches.

Tip:

  • If you are using an old tank top as I did, measure 3 inches up from the bottom and cut straight across. Then cut them into 2 inch pieces, leaving the sewn seams attached.

Step 8

Next, line the edges of 2 pieces up, right sides together, and pin along the edges.

Note:

  • Do this to all of your fabric pieces. This should give you 3 pinned “pillows”.

Step 9

Next, sew around each of your pillows leaving a small gap to turn the fabric right side out after sewing. Be sure to pull out the pins as you stitch your edges.

Step 10

Once all of your pillows are sewn, turn them right-side out.

Step 11

Then fill each pillow with Poly-Fil.

Step 12 (Optional)

Add 2-3 marbles inside each pillow.

Tips:

  • Adding the marbles makes it easier to knock down the pumpkins. If your kids are older, you can omit them to make the game more difficult.
  • You can also use beans or dry corn to add weight, I just prefer not to use food.

Soak Up Summer Fun with 15 Backyard DIY Activities

Yesterday we celebrated my brother-in-law’s 30th birthday with a huge party full of food, family, and fun. His parents rented a venue right next to a local park and we spent the day running around with the kids playing, swinging, and laughing. It was a particularly special day for my in-laws because when my brother-in-law was 2 years old he was diagnosed with cancer and they never knew if this birthday would even come. It is a beautiful reminder to celebrate the time that you have with your loved ones. At the end of the day we were happy, grateful, and exhausted. With that in mind, I wanted to round up 15 backyard DIY activities that let you soak up summer fun with your family.

Glow-in-the-Dark Scavenger Hunt

It’s Wednesday and that means it is time for another awesome glow game! Unfortunately storms have been ripping through our area so we aren’t getting much outdoor time this week. Hopefully we will have sunshine for Sunday but until then let’s teach you how to make and play glow-in-the-dark scavenger hunt. This is my favorite glow game so far because it is so versatile. You can adapt it for indoors, parties, vacations, and a ton of other destinations. All you have to do to change it up is make a new key and clues.

Step 7

After your sheets are filled out, break your glow sticks and add your connectors.

Tip:

  • Try to keep like connectors grouped together to make them easier to hide for the game.

Step 8

Now, hide your glow sticks in the places that correspond with your hints.

Step 9

Last, give each player a scavenger hunt sheet and let the game begin.

Some Last Tips:

  • Keep your connectors because you can totally re-use them in the future. That’s why we put the tape on the connectors instead of the glow sticks. Store them in a bag along with extra printables.
  • You can use the same key for multiple games but updating with the new locations. There are multiple lines available but you can also use white-out if it fills up.
  • Save time and money by playing the scavenger hunt with teams instead of individual players. This allows you to cover fewer connectors and use fewer glow sticks for each game.

So what is your take? Does this glow-in-the-dark scavenger hunt rocket to the top of your favorite glow games too? Don’t forget to print out extra sheets to take with you on vacation. It’s a great game to pull out if you get stuck in the hotel room. You can also turn it into an adventure and use it on a camping trip. Take a night hike full of glowy fun one night and then celebrate with some delicious s’mores. That’s definitely a camping win-win.

DIY Glow Can Toss

Holy cow, how are we on our fifth glow-in-the-dark game already? If summer break is starting to stress you out, though, you are going to love this one. It is not only fun but also a healthy and slightly covert way to take out your frustration. DIY glow can toss lets you whip a Frisbee at a bunch of cans for the explicit purpose of knocking them down. How cathartic is that? Of, and there’s also a bonus for you moms with little ones: toddlers LOVE re-stacking the cans so you don’t even have to reset them! This is pretty much the perfect game to whip out on those moms days when you’re ready to pull your hair out.

This is the perfect game for those frustrating mom days! DIY glow can toss lets you whip a Frisbee at cans for the explicit purpose of knocking them down.

Step 1

Cover each of your clean cans in a different color of acrylic paint. I used red, yellow, blue, green, orange, and purple paint each mixed with white to brighten them up.

Allow the paint to dry completely.

Step 3 (Optional)

Put a second coat of paint on your cans if you would like. I chose not to but if you do, allow the paint to dry before moving on.

Step 5

Allow the paint to dry.

Tip:

  • Fabric paint will take longer to dry than your acrylic paint.

Step 6

After your glow paint has dried, spray your cans with clear engine paint. This will make sure that the paint stands up to repeatedly being hit with your glow Frisbee.

How to Play Glow Can Toss

Set Up: Align your glow cans in a pyramid. Be sure to charge them (and your glow Frisbee) with light before playing. Next, mark spots on the ground for the different levels. Spots should be marked at the following intervals:

  • 3 Feet
  • 6 Feet
  • 9 Feet
  • 12 Feet

Game Play: The game is played by players taking turns tossing the glow Frisbee at the cans from each distance. The cans should be reset after each toss. For example, player 1 tosses the Frisbee from 3 feet away. The player gets a point for every can that is knocked down. The cans are then reset and player 2 tosses the Frisbee from 3 feet. Play continues in this way until each player has tossed the Frisbee from each distance.

Winning the Game: The winner of the game is the player with the most points at the end of the last round.

DIY glow can toss is also fantastic because there is no limit to the number of players. While it might take a while to get through the rounds you could essentially have a hundred people playing. Make a couple of sets and you are ready to keep people entertained at parties, family reunions, or summer camps. Pair it with some of the other glow games like glow stick tag and giant backyard glow pong for an awesome, over-the-top summer bash. Don’t forget to check back next week for the sixth glow game in our summer series!

Glow Balloon Tennis

Yay! It’s time for another awesome outdoor glow game. This week we’re playing glow balloon tennis and it is just as much fun to play during the day as it is at night. You will want to have a lot of balloons prepped before you play. As players get more into the game and play rougher, the balloons will start breaking. If it becomes a problem, pull out the wiffle balls from your DIY Giant Backyard Glow Pong game. Change out your balloons for the wiffle balls and players can go nuts.

Step 4

Place a glow stick in each balloon and blow the balloon up around it.

Tip:

  • Do not blow the balloon up to full capacity. Only make it large enough to hold the glow stick.

How to Play Glow Balloon Tennis

Start by breaking into 2 teams of 2 players. One team is frogs and the other team is ladybugs. Next, determine the center line and have one team on either side of it. You can mark the center with a chair if you need a visual representation. To play, one team serves the balloon across the center line. This doesn’t need to be done any certain distance from the center. The receiving team must get the balloon back across the center in 3 hits. Additionally, the same player cannot hit the balloon twice in a row. A point is scored any time the returning team fails to get the balloon back over the center in 3 hits. The first team to score 10 points wins.

Who doesn’t love batting a balloon around? Glow balloon tennis will have your family laughing and having a blast together this summer. Planning on a large party or gathering? You can easily add more players by adding more fly swatters. All of the same rules apply regardless of the number of players. That makes it a fantastically versatile game!

The way that you arrange your buckets will depend on how many you are using. The buckets should be divided into 2 equal groups and arranged as outlined below. Place your groups 10-20 feet apart, the prior for small children and the latter for groups of adults.

  • 10 Buckets: Arrange 5 buckets in a plus sign pattern in each group. From the bottom: 1 Bucket, 3 Buckets, 1 Bucket

Game Play

Divide into teams and take turns trying to toss the wiffle balls into the buckets. Each time a ball lands in a bucket, that bucket is removed from play. Balls can be blocked by the defending team but team members cannot move in front of the buckets to do so. Also, if a bucket is knocked over during a block, it is still removed from play. The first team to eliminate all of their opponents’ buckets wins.
