In honor of National Get Outdoors Day, I’ve compiled a list of the 10 best outdoor games to play with your kids…right in your own backyard!
I know it’s easy to get caught up planning the next adventure, but sometimes the best days are enjoyed at home, and with the weather finally warming up, it’s the perfect excuse to make a family date outside.
My girls are 5 and 7 which I’ve found to be the perfect ages to really get into backyard games…and their little competitive nature (which I attribute to their dad!) is peeping through. They love a good rule book, keeping score, and most of all, playing all together.
So if you’re needing some inspo to get the ball rolling (ok, pun intended), here’s a list of our favorite games which I guarantee your kids will love!
They’re also hyperlinked straight to Amazon if you want to order before school gets out!
The 10 Best Outdoor Games To Play With Your Kids
- Capture The Flag
- Spike Ball
- Obstacle Course
- Scavenger Hunt
I’ll also add, I always keep a few things on hand when the kids are outside – water, snacks and ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandages – just to play it safe! It’s definitely better to stay prepared and in the event something should happen, you’ve got your bases covered. Plus, ACE™ Brand Elastic Bandages are comfortable for the kiddos and machine washable.
