Family Frisbee Golf

My husband is an ultimate freak...Ultimate Frisbee that is. When his birthday rolled around I wanted to do something together as a family that involved his favorite things...family and frisbees. I found this great idea of making your own Frisbee Golf game over at the dating divas where you can find printables and instructions. They did it as a date night (which would be fun as well) but I adapted it for a family fun night.

What you need:
  • a Frisbee for each person (having your own color is ideal...but I realize that most people don't have 20 different Frisbees like we do)
  • 6 baskets or targets to throw the Frisbee in
  • notes attached to each target
  • score cards (you can print one from the link above)
 Here's How:
  • The game is like miniature golf, only using a Frisbee. You each take turns throwing your Frisbee to the designated targets. Keep track of how many throws it takes to hit the target. Lowest score wins (which is always Eric in our family).
  • For an extra twist, I added notes at each target. When we had all completed that round, we would read the note and do what it said. It was Eric's birthday so the notes said things like "Tell Dad why you love him", "What is your favorite thing to do with Dad?", "Give Dad a big hug", "Sing Happy Birthday really loud for everyone to hear."
  • We have also played where we just went to the park and we all took turns choosing the next target. Some were going through a soccer goal-post, hitting a specific tree, landing the Frisbee on a park bench, getting it in the net of a basketball hoop, etc. We kept playing until we had made it around the park.
This has turned into one of our favorite things to do together. It can be as easy or as hard as you want to make it. We have done it in our yard and at the park. It's a fun way to spend some time together without spending any money!

Have Fun!
