It's the classic dice game Yahtzee, super-sized for the backyard! Learn how to make your own "Yardzee" game with Valu Home Centers.
- One 4x4 board (at least 1.5 ft long)
- 5 Gal. Valu bucket
- Minwax wood finish - any color
- Staining pad
- Any color paint for your dice dots (we used Rust-Oleum Ultra Cover)
- Tape measure
- Circular saw
- Drill with forstner bit
- Sand paper
- Palm sander (optional)
- Latex gloves (optional)
STEP 1) Mark your 4x4 at 3.5" intervals and cut out five pieces. Since a 4x4 is actually 3.5 inches, you’ll end up with five perfect cubes.
STEP 2) Sand the cube smooth on each side and round the corners. Using an actual dice or a photo for reference, mark where your dots should go on each side. Now you have a couple of options. You can drill, stain, paint, burn, or use any other method to get your dots. We’re going to drill a shallow hole at each point using a 5/8 inch forstner bit.
STEP 3) Next, we’ll stain the dice with Minwax Wood Finish. Once it dries we’ll finish by using a q-tip to paint the dots on with Rust-Oleum’s Ultra Cover paint.
