Making Memories in the Backyard and a Giant DIY Tic Tac Toe Game

Hi Friends! The carefree days of summer are starting to wind down, but that doesn't mean you can't still have some family fun. Spending time outdoors with your kiddos is an important part of creating memories that will last long after the latest video game loses it newness.

Creating your own "water park" with slip-and-slides, blow-up pools and water trampoline are just some of the ways we've spent the afternoons in the past.

As the sun starts to go down and things cool off a bit in the evenings, we've been known to have a raging game of Washers going on.

This year, we brought back a classic game and super-sized it for backyard fun with this Giant DIY Tic Tac Toe Game.

I'm actually sharing this fun project at Living Well Spending Less today as part of her Summer Fun with Kids series. I hope you'll stop by to check it out. You can get the supply list, the instructions and enter to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card. Now THAT'S some summer fun!

What are you doing to create memories with your kids this summer?
