Here’s another fun game to play for all ages, especially for kids. It’s called a Kerplunk Game. The original Kerplunk game is small, made from plastic, and is mainly for indoor use. But to make it more interesting and to encourage kids to spend more time outdoors, I’ve built a Giant DIY Kerplunk Game with a wire mesh screen. This is a great backyard game for any occasion or a party.

I have some grandkids that would love this – probably a few adult friends too!

Neat idea. I remember playing the “indoor” original version as a kid.

Memories from my childhood. Mom throwing it in the Goodwill bin, after we were poking each other with the sticks. “Yer gonna put an eye out” The funny part was every kid in the neighborhood had a BB gun, and never a peep about that.

Thanks for the motivation. Definitely have to make one for the camp ground in June.
