Outdoor yard games are my absolute FAV! They are the perfect way to spend an afternoon in the yard with your family and friends.

Some of my favorites are:

Washer Toss is a similar style game to bags/cornhole but is easier for transport and super easy to make yourself!

How to Build Your Washers Game


TIP: We went to Home Depot for our supplies. They can cut all of the wood/pvc for you so you don’t have to do any sawing at home.

Step 1: Build the base

Attach the 16 inch boards to the 13 inch boards to create a square. Repeat for the second set.

TIP: We noticed that the wood was splitting a bit if we didn’t drill pilot holes first. Take a small drill bit and create a hole for screw to go in and you will avoid the wood splitting.

You should end up with two of these

Step 2: Attach the bottom piece to the base you built

The board might not line up exactly but that is ok. Make sure that if you painted the board that you place it face down before you start drilling. That way when you flip the base over you will see your paint/stain on the bottom.

Step 3: Attach the PVC

Place the PVC in the center of the board. Liquid nail will dry faster (we learned this as we did the project) You could also use a small paint can instead of the PVC.

Step 4: Paint/label the washers

Paint/label half of the washers (4 of them). We decided to paint our washers 2 different colors so we could tell them apart. You can paint them any color you’d like.

Now you are ready to play!
