Warm weather is here, and that means spending more time outdoors with your children. If you’re looking for some new games to add into your outdoor play repertoire, look no further. Below are some fun, simple games to take outside with you this season.
Put a ribbon, bandana, or piece of cloth in each participant’s back pocket. Once the game begins, the objective is to try to grab each other's cloth without having your own stolen. The individual with the most ribbons at the end wins.
Clown Foot Relay
Give each player 2 shoe boxes, have them tape the lids onto the boxes, and then cut a narrow opening in each box top. Have the participants slip their feet into the boxes and then race.
Build an obstacle path from one end of the play area to the other. Have the players line up, and allow them to have a good look at the path. Then, one at a time, blindfold the players, and have them navigate the path without looking. Record each participant’s time to see who does it the fastest.
Split up into 2 teams, and give each team an old sheet or blanket. Have one participant from each team lie down on the blanket, and then the teams must pull the person on the blanket from one end of the yard to the other. Whichever team crosses the finish line first, wins the game.
