Those single socks hiding in your dresser drawer may never find their mates, but they can find an exciting new adventure as bean bag toys! Create your own bean bag toss game with old socks—the wackier and more colorful they are, the better—plus a few repurposed materials you can find around the house. Since there’s no cutting or sewing required, it’s simple enough for kids to get in on the making.
Turn any open, grassy space in your backyard into a DIY water adventure park. With only your garden hose, a super-slippery tarp or plastic sheet, and a few other items, you can make a wild backyard waterslide that will keep kids splashing and sliding all afternoon long!
Light up an ordinary game of tag—and keep outdoor play going long after sunset—with glow stick necklaces! In this nighttime adventure, players “disappear” into the darkness, transforming into fast-moving, glowing blurs of colour that float effortlessly in the air. It’s as much fun to watch as it is to play.
