DIY Lawn Yahtzee Dice
This is a project that you can work on with your kids to create memories this spring and summer. It only requires a few supplies! Before you know it, you will be rockin’ & rollin’ with this fun outside game! *Note: this post contains affiliate links.
To create your own DIY Lawn Yahtzee Dice, you will need:
- Wooden blocks (I cut 4 inch by 4 inch blocks from a fence post that I bought at the hardware store)
- Colored paint (I choose neon colors!)
- Black paint (for the dots)
- Flat foam brush
- Circle foam brush
- Sealant spray
To begin, make sure your blocks are well sanded and don’t have any rough spots. Next, paint your blocks, making sure each side has adequate coverage so that none of the wood is showing.
Allow enough time (24 hours) for your blocks to dry before you paint the dots.
Next, use your circle foam brush and saturate it with black paint. You can use a picture of dice, or an actual dice to guide where to place your dots. Place your dots on each side of your dice.
Remember, the opposite sides of the dice always add up to 7. 1-6, 2-5, 3-4.
After painting your dots, allow at least 24 hours of drying time.
To give your blocks a protective coat, spray them with a clear acrylic sealant.
This will help preserve your paint and give them a nice shiny finish.
