I saw a set of six yard dice on Pinterest. I knew they would be a fantastic gift for my hubby for Father’s Day. They were $50! Then they were no longer a fantastic gift for my hubby…
Thankfully, I am fairly clever and handy with a saw. All I needed was a 4x4 post, a saw, a sander, and some outdoor paint. Easy peasy!
First cut your post into six 3 1/2” pieces. Then sand the rough sides and edges.
Then trace your dots onto the cubes using a real dice as your guide. I traced a large button with a pencil.
To seal them and make them more weather/moisture/grass stain resistant, spray them with a few coats of clear spray paint.
In order for them to be easily taken to the park, backyard, beach or wherever you’d like to play, I made a nice heavy-duty bag with a drawstring top.
I also made a chalkboard game board for both Yahtzee and Farkle. You could also just throw a couple of game pads into the bag.
Some chalk and a cloth for erasing and we were ready to play!
Lawn dice are great for all ages and are tons of fun!
