A few years ago I was challenged to make a fun Flamingo Ring Toss yard game for a party for the kids. At first I wasn’t sure how to make that request work but with a little help from the husband we created something so fun and it is still something that the kids like to play in the yard. That being said, we started searching for other DIY summer yard games to make for our spring and summertime yard fun and we came up with a list of yard games we will be attempting to make this summer.
