You can make a volleyball four square game with basic materials from the hardware store for about $20!  This is a very quick and easy project.  

My daughter has been seeing the ads for the Crossnet game - a combination of volleyball and four square, but it is speedy and sold out, so I thought we’d just use some hardware store supplies and make her one.
