Hi! My name is Jeanie and I am the power-tool-loving writer behind Create & Babble. I write about how I make pretty things and make things pretty by sharing my do-it-yourself home improvement and home decorating projects. I have always had a passion for all things DIY; after all, I was raised by a shop teacher dad and a Home Ec teacher mom! Now I love sharing that passion with my readers who enjoy the tutorials, plans, lessons, practical tips, and ideas, that empower and inspire them to do it themselves, too!


    • This is a great idea for a kids' game in the fall!
      By karen_atlanta, on September 1, 2015

    • This is a great idea - I've been a huge Yahtzee fan all my life! However, there are 5 dice in the game, not 6!! I'm also wondering how well the dice roll/stay up on grass - it would have to be cut very short (or, there's the option of playing on a harder, flatter surface such as concrete). Thanks!

    • Love this!!! How fun for outdoor play time and what a great gift this would be!! Where did you find the basket?

    • Awesome! Great job at getting the kids outside and active!

    • My sisters birthday is this week & I haven’t been able to find her anything unique. She loves Yatzee & lives in the country, so I think these would make a great Belated gift. Thanks for sharing!

    • So Cute! I have been watching for a wooden ladder to do something like this, but haven't been able to find one. Now I can make one! That is if I get the right tools.... ;)
