This backyard tossing game is very similar to bowling but doesn't require heavy balls or polished lanes. To play, you set up the twelve numbered wooden pins and take turns tossing a log. If you knock over a single pin you earn the number of points that are on that pin and if you knock over multiple, your points are the same as the number of pins you knocked down. Sounds simple enough, except that your goal is to be the first player to get exactly 50 points. If you exceed 50, your score is dropped back down to 25. You can buy a Finska set here.
If you've been feeling a bit stir crazy from spending so much time indoors this winter during lockdown, take advantage of spring and the sunshine by playing some fun outdoor games with your household. From burrito dodgeball to board games that are windproof, these games are sure to keep kids entertained and help you feel connected to the people you live with.
If you don't have a yard, that's OK: these games are also suitable for playing at your local park, and some can still be modified to play indoors.
