DIY Vintage Style Ring Toss
Summertime is when the backyard becomes your second home. Whether you're hosting a party or entertaining the kids, everyone will love this DIY game. To create your own Vintage Style Ring Toss, all you need are:
Before you make your ring toss, be sure to rinse out your wine bottles well. The total number of bottles you'll need depends on the size of the wooden box you're using. Paint the outside of your bottles whatever colors you think will look great. It's completely optional, but you can even paint the words "ring toss" on the outside of the box.
Photo Scavenger Hunt
Write up a short list of items that your family or even friends can find around the house, or outside. These items can include things like "Something Blue", "Two types of flowers", etc. Use phones or cameras to take photos of the items. Whoever has the most photos at the end is the winner.
