With July 4th just around the corner I thought that it would be fun to share with you one of my favorite outdoor games. The supplies needed for this game are simple and more than likely lying around your home. This game, tin can toss, is a wonderful outdoor activity that can be enjoyed by both big and little party goers! And, with these adorable red, white and blue printables, your cans will never have looked cuter.

  1. I love this idea. It’s nice and simple, and the concept of making a game out of things you already have around your home? I love getting as much reuse out of things as humanly possible. So much fun!
