In the summer, you want to make sure the kids aren’t stuck inside all day long. Here are some ideas for outdoor games that you can play with your family plus a bonus game for the adults.
For the kids:
Forget the plastic! Grab four different spray paint colors and spray paint them on the lawn for the ultimate game of Twister. So much easier to move around on the grass than a wrinkling plastic mat!
Bean Bag Ladder Toss
Just use a standard ladder, and award each space between rung a certain number of points (starting from the bottom.)
Glow in the Dark Bowling
Got some glowsticks? How about water bottles? Put the glowsticks in the water bottles and use a tennis ball or something similar as the bowling ball. It’s the perfect night game!
For the adults:
Giant Beer Pong
Red cups? Psh, those are for amateurs! This’ll take some investment, but if you’re okay with buying a bunch of big trash cans, set them out on the lawn cup-style and then use a volleyball or rubber pall in place of the ping-pong ball!
