DIY Backyard Skeet Ball

Posted by

Make your own skeet ball themed game for the backyard or to take to the park.

The follow ideas are only suggestions, please feel free to come up with your own way of making a game with this theme.

Suggestions:

Something to make a ramp out of: A box, small slide, wood and a few bricks, wood and nails, etc.

A large ball: Playground ball, soccer ball, beach ball, etc.

A Target: Buckets, baskets, or boxes that your ball will fit into

Paint, paint brush, markers, razor blade, or whatever tools are needed to cut wood or cardboard

Options for a small scale game:

Ramp: Cardboard box or wood and some bricks

Target: Bucket/Pail/Laundry Basket

Ball: Tennis, soft balls, baseballs, splash balls, etc.

Some rocks or sand may be needed at the bottom of a container/bucket, etc. to prevent the ball from bouncing out and the container from falling over as easily.

The basic idea is to set up the game so that a ball jumps a ramp and lands into a target. Make up a point system and encourage players to keep track of their own score, or have a whiteboard and marker handy to keep score, or chalk and a chalkboard or sidewalk.

Try to get different sized containers to use as a target.
