Simple Summer Fun

While on vacation, we've been enjoying playing board games at night.  Some friends came to visit and introduced us to Bananagrams.  It has quickly become a new family favorite. It is very similar to Scrabble, but without a game board and it moves along quickly.  It's a great after dinner game and my 6 year old has even been using the letter tiles to work on her spelling during the day.  But, I couldn't resist sharing these pictures of our second favorite game this summer-good old fashioned checkers.
We discovered this homemade checkerboard painted on
 the outdoor picnic table and it has kept us busy.
So simple and charming.

  1. Brilliant. Nothing beats board games...especially homemade ones.

  2. My daughter and I like to play Banangrams. Haven't had it out for awhile-may have to change that! :)

    That checkerboard idea is so, so neat!

  3. Oh what a fun idea. I think we need to make one of these for our grandsons to use.

  4. That is the sweetest picnic table ever! Thanks so much for linking this up at the party this week. I've also featured this post on my Facebook page ♥
