I’ve been at it again. I took the kiddos to the Dollar Tree and found inspiration for another fun project. Since the weather has finally been so beautiful, outdoor games have been on my mind. In fact, I picked up enough items for more than one game. Be sure to check back all summer long for more fun (and cheap) DIY games!
Flying Disc Game Materials
- 4 Stackable File Organizers (I got mine at Dollar Tree)
- Teal Spray Paint
- Small Plastic Plates
- Pink Spray Paint
- Orange Spray Paint
- Number Stickers (Optional)
First, remove the labels from your stackable file organizers.
Next, clean the file organizers to ensure that they are free of dust and dirt. This helps the paint stick.
After your file organizers are clean, place one on a protected surface for painting.
Then paint the file organizer with teal spray paint. Set off to the side (still on a protected surface) and allow to dry completely.
- I recommend using spray paint specifically for plastic and/or outdoor use.
Repeat step 4 with your remaining file organizers.
While your file organizers dry, paint 3 of your plastic plates pink and 3 of them orange.
- I used the same type of spray paint on my plates as I did on the file organizers, only in different colors.
Again, set aside to dry completely.
Step 8 (Optional)
Optionally, you can add number stickers to your stackable file organizers for scoring. For small kids, I recommend making the top and bottom trays worth 5 points and the center 2 worth 10 points. For older kids and adults, make the scoring as follows starting with the top tray: 5, 10, 15, 10.
How to Play Outdoor Flying Disc Game
Stack your file organizers (in order if scoring stickers are attached). Each player takes turns tossing 3 discs towards the organizers. Add up the scores of the discs in the organizer before removing them.
The first player or team to 100 points wins. If 100 points is reached by the first player or team in the round, the second player or team has a chance to tie with their remaining turn.
In the event of a tie, have a sudden death round. Each player or team gets one set of tosses. Whichever one scores the most from the sudden death round wins!
The kiddos had a blast with this easy outdoor flying disc game until the wind picked up. Then I had a ton of fun watching them carefully aim only to have the wind whip their discs in the totally wrong direction. Adorableness all around, I promise. Now that you’ve checked out this fun DIY game, be sure to check out the other awesome kids summer activities from my friends. And come back tomorrow for another fun activity from yours truly.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
