The Human Bowling Ball!!!!! This is AWESOME!

Giant Connect 4- awesome!!!

Balloon Tennis ~ Fun idea for the kids. Everyone likes playing with balloons! Decorate/personalize the plates.

Cinnamon in the Sandbox - It keeps the bugs away. I knew cinnamon repelled ants... but I never thought of this! So smart!

Buy a Bucket Boss (a portable tool belt that hooks on a bucket) from a building supply store for about $7, put it on a bucket (duh), and add the kids' art supplies & small games. Inside holds big stuff like paper and all the pockets on the outside are for pens, markers, glue, scissors, small games, etc.
