16 Fun DIY Backyard Game Ideas To Bring Your Family Closer Together

It is starting to warm up here, which means we are spending more time outside as a family.

We are going to be working on our backyard this year. Not only the garden, but getting our grassy area better looking as well.

We want to get it cleaned up, better looking grass and a fire pit.

I also want to get some backyard games for the family.

Our kids are teenagers now, so we don’t really need a swing set or sand box.

They would love a trampoline, but I don’t think that is in the budget this year.

I was thinking about what else we could do to make things more fun outside.

Lighting and seating are definately on the list.

But what else could we add? Backyard games!

So, of course, I turned to Pinterest to get some ideas for fun backyard family time this summer!

Here is what I came up with for our family.
