    We got some free carpet samples this spring when we did a Candyland birthday party for my son. We wanted an outdoor version of the game where the kids were the game pieces. The colors that we got from the carpet stores were not ideal for the game, so we spray painted them and laid them out in the backyard. We used the cards from the game and my husband went around to each kid and let them pick their card, then they went to the next block. It was a lot of fun. The winner even got to take the home version of the game home with them. ;)
