Playing games is an excellent way to have fun with your family. And games get everyone outside exercising. Try these out the next time the sun is shining!
- Backyard Obstacle Course
Gather items you have around the house, set up a course and test your skills in a friendly family competition.
- Oversized Memory Game
Take at least 10 sheets of poster board, draw matching numbers, pictures or symbols on each half, and cut them down the middle. Place them outside, face down and take turns guessing and matching them up.
- Yard Twister
Make your Twister as small or large as you want. Just spray-paint the circles directly onto the grass, and you can keep playing until the next time to mow.
- Sandbox on a Budget
Sand is an excellent trigger for creative play. Build sandcastles, dig or make up your own sand games. So dig out a storage box and bring the beach to your own backyard.
