The Backyard Entertaining Show
Prepare for warm-weather gatherings with a guide to ladder golf and classic lawn games from Paul Tukey and actress Victoria Rowell, authors of “Tag, Toss and Run.” Then, turn a basic hurricane vase into a rustic knotted hanging decoration for your outdoor space. Plus, crowd-pleasing ice pop recipes.
Classic Lawn Games 101
• Ladder Golf: Wrap your team's golf ball "bolas" around ladder steps, the higher the better.
• Blind Man's Bluff: When the blindfolded player stops spinning, the other players must freeze in place and call out to him or her until the blindfolded player tags another.
• Wiffle Ball: Like baseball, but with a well-ventilated ball.
• Molkky: Finnish throwing game: Toss a peg to knock down the pins, or "skittles," and score high.
