Create your own dominoes by painting pieces of wood or stones with a flat surface, to make a playful set for friends and family to use this summer. If you’re going to be storing them outside, use outdoor paint to make sure the markings won’t run, and treat the wood.
Provide fun for all the family on a shoestring budget
Noughts & crosses
Find 10 flat stones of a similar size, and mark five with noughts and the other five with crosses. Use a Sharpie pen or a permanent marker to draw onto the surface. Then take four pieces of rope and lay these out on the ground to mark out the grid shape.
Carefully fill balloons with water, making sure they don’t pop. Pin them to a dart board or a piece of wood. Have fun trying to pop the balloons by throwing darts and seeing who can burst the most! Make sure you keep score.
