DIY BucketBall – A Backyard or Beach Game

A few weeks ago we were spending time with our favorite people….RL and her girls.  They’d recently purchased a new backyard game and it was a real hit with the kids.  My son has been asking me to buy it ever since.  So, with summer right around the corner and the anticipation of more and more neighborhood kids hanging around, I decided to purchase it……..until I saw the price tag – $59.99!!!!!  Whaaaaaaat???  Sixty bucks for some buckets and balls??  Yeah, no…and I’m not going to lie, the description of the BucketBall bucket made me laugh out loud.   I immediately knew I could recreate the same exact concept using items from The Dollar Tree.

I purchased 10 buckets (the real game has 12 buckets….I was not sure if it was 10 or 12 and can easily go back for two more), and a two-pack of balls.  Eleven dollars……..I spent eleven dollars.  Easy peasy.

I removed all of the handles.

Fill each bucket 1/2 full with water and set them up like bowling pins.

Let the game begin.  Get your ball into a bucket, take that bucket away….first one with no buckets left wins.
