7 Yard Games to Play Memorial Day Weekend (Or Any Other Weekend)

You’re likely spending a lot more time at home than usual. And with the long weekend you may be looking for new activities to enjoy in your own backyard. Maybe it’s time to learn how to play Turkey Sticks?

You probably have no idea what that is because it’s a yard game made up by one of our creative team members.  Plus, he added a rule or two to make sense.

Regardless, yard games add that missing element to an afternoon of chilling with your crew. There are so many yard games out there that we know you’re missing out on some fun. So, may we present some of the greatest yard games out there and how to play them!


Turkey Sticks


Google searches gave us multiple names for this, but our favorite was  “Frisbeer.”
Go here for the rules.
Bonus rule: If you do not have the frisbee, you can try and sneak over to the other team’s bottle and slap it down with your hands. If they see you, they scream Turkey and try to hit you with the frisbee before you get back to your side. 2 points if you get the bottle. 1 point if they hit you with the frisbee. (This is how we chose the name ‘Turkey Sticks.’)

 


Bocce


You can either play this game in a designated area or explore a whole area.

 


KanJam


Fun and fairly simple to set up and play.

 


Cornhole

Via Moody Air Force Base

This is the most “Go-To” yard game there is. But if you have arguments on scoring… Here’s the official rules.

 


Spikeball


This game was on Shark Tank and has a lot more physical activity. But, it looks like a blast!

 


Beer Pong Golf

If you like beer pong, cornhole and golf… you’re going to LOVE this!

 


Ladder Golf


Perhaps the only reason it has the word golf is because golf balls are involved. But no golf skills are required!
