3 FUN BACKYARD GAMES
Summer is winding down, but there’s still time for fun! Here are 3 fun game ideas for your kids and their friends.
Put the kids into 2 or 3 teams, depending on how many kids you have. Place the kids on each team opposite each other, 10-15 feet apart. You’ll need fun wearable items. One at a time, one child from each team puts everything on, then runs across the way and takes it all off. The next child on their team has to do the same. The first team to finish wins, but they’ll all have great fun. Here are some suggestions for the wearable items. Hat, Lei, Sunglasses, Bracelet, Clown Nose, Clown Wig. The kids will have tons of fun!
BEACH BUCKET TOSS
Get a few beach buckets at the dollar store. Put the kids on teams, and place 4 buckets in front of each team, a few feet away. You’ll need several items for them to toss into the buckets. When the time is us, whichever team has the most items in their buckets wins. Some suggestions for items to toss are Hackey Sack Balls, Rubber Ducks, Suction Ball, Hedge Ball, Water Bomb Ball.
FLIP FLOP TOSS
Get a bunch of Flip Flops at the dollar store. Put the kids into teams. They have to toss the flip flops a few feet in front of them and see how many can land face up.
If you know who will be in your child’s upcoming class, this would make a nice getting-to-know-you gathering. All of the items that you used can be divvied up for the kids to take home. They’ll love it!
