A Picnic Twist on Twister

Here's a great way to play twister outside...with a lot of people or just a few!

  • Cardboard (middle for circle spinner, the circle-frame to be used as a stencil for spray painting)
  • Upholstery tack (you may find a better solution, we were using what we had on hand - without buying more materials)
  • 3 colors of Krylon spray paint
  • Gorilla tape
  • Utility knife
  • Dinner plate to trace
  • Markers
  • Ruler/yardstick
How To:

1.  For instructions on making your own spinner, go HERE.  Or, you can use one from a game you bought or just put all the different combinations into a hat/bag and draw them out.  It's a lot easier than making your own spinner.

2.  Decide on a flat large area of the yard. Place the stencil in the upper left hand corner and choose your first color. We chose red.

3.  Measure to the right of first circle 6 inches to place the circle stencil (the left inside circle border placed at 6" as shown).  Spray paint another color. Repeat for desired size.  (Or decide on a pattern as shown in the Pinterest inspiration.)

4.  Start the next row with the 2nd color used in row one, ending with first color used in row one. Repeat. 

5.  Let dry.

Time to play!
