Turn your patio into a checkerboard! A great way to spruce up a boring patio and get the family to get outside and play. This could also be used for chess. We're loving the idea of life-size boards games - remind us of Harry Potter! If you don't want to do something so permanent to your patio, check out these portable giant checkerboards. But you would have to remember to bring it in when it rains. :) Follow our Outdoor Games board on Pinterest for awesome ideas and DIY yard games.
