Tailgating Games, Recipes & Menus on a Budget:
First, let’s take a look at a fun and frugal game.
Washer Toss Game
This game is so fun and easy, you will enjoy playing it for hours. All you need is two shoe boxes, two plastic cups, a hot glue gun and glue, and a handful of metal washers. To assemble your game, glue your cups to the inside of each shoe box. Place each box at least 10-12 feet apart. Each person stands next to a box, and gets a handful of washers. Now, take turns tossing the washer into the cups while standing at the opponent’s box. You get 10 points if it goes in the cup, 5 points if it goes in the box, and of course zero points if it lands outside the box.
Now, let’s talk recipes!

Last but not least, let’s look at a great tailgate menu.
Why not try a hot dog bar? Assemble hot dogs on a buffet with all sorts of toppings. You can try traditional ones like ketchup and relish, plus add less traditional ones like bacon bits, hot sauce, chopped tomatoes, shredded cheeses, and other fun toppings. Let guests make their own custom dog and name it. How fun is that?
