Step 4: Did Someone say "Outdoor Twister"?  

What You'll Need
Cardboard box or empty pizza box
Large Round Pot
Red, Yellow, Green and blue Spray Paint
Craft knife or scissors

Put your pot in the middle of the inside of your box. Trace the circle and remove the pot. Take your craft knife or scissors and cut out the circle. Remove the circle you cut out and throw it away. Now you have your stencil to work with.

Start with red spray paint in the area you want the twister game to be. Spray six circles down and move on to the next row with the next color. Repeat until the game is complete. There should be four rows (one of each color) with six circles in them.

Step 5: Grab a blanket,  pack your games and goodies in a picnic basket and head out doors!  Wishing you and yours an enjoyable 4th of July Weekend!
