Sometimes it is really hard to entertain your kids, even the adults too. When you have a tree swing it is a lot of fun. This is a great game made out of PVC pipe. You make the three ladders out of the PVC pipe. Then you get some golf balls and drill a whole through the center and connect them with a rope. This game is a lot like horse shoes.

You have two PVC ladders and each opponent has three or four sets of golf balls. Standing three or four paces apart from eachother you toss the golf balls with the rope at the other ladder like a horse shoe game. You can create different point systems for yourself. More points for the top and less points for the bottom or the opposite.

There are different stratagies for throwing the golf balls. Some people hold on to one ball and swing the other. Or others will hold both golf balls and throw them together. It is a lot of fun and every one usually gets pretty competitve in the back yard with this game.

    How big of PVC do you use when you make one of those. I have a few golf balls and want to put one together. I need to make sure that I get the PVC pipe size right so it is nice and sturdy.

    Hey Alex, I just built one of those and I used 3/4 in pipe and it worked great. Just make sure you get the right kind of glue. I put some together with the wrong glue and it fell apart. It took for ever to clean all the surfaces off and use the correct glue.
