It’s party season in our house and to save my sanity and a messy house, I like to keep the kids outside playing. The game of Twister is easy to replicate in your outdoor area, all you need is chalk paint and a stencil!

DIY twister

What you’ll need:

  • Cardboard to make a circle stencil
  • Spray chalk paint (or chalk if not using grass)


  1. Make a circle stencil out of cardboard.
  2. Choose a suitable place to paint your Twister board.
  3. Stick with the usual Twister board or make up your own.
  4. Leave to dry and it’s ready to use.
  5. If you’ve painted a standard Twister board you can use the spinner from the game, otherwise you can make your own.

My kids love Twister but the plastic mat is often so slippery and also bunches up which annoys them. This is the perfect solution.

Do your kids love Twister? Please add comment below.

  • Brilliant and fun idea and great for warmer weather and outdoor play time.


  • LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea. For summer of course. Think it’s a fab idea to get the kids outside as well as playing off the screens.

    • I think there will be lots of outdoor Twister during Summer!


  • This is a nice simple idea.


  • This would be safer than playing on slippery plastic on a floor which is basically a covered concrete slab. Bonus – fresh air and hopefully some gentle sunshine.
    Don’t forget the sunscreen.
