3 super summery outdoor games

15 June 2016

How does it look out the window? Sun shining, birds singing, all round summery feel? Then it’s time to grab the kids, unplug the TV and head on outside. To get you started we’ve put together three of our favourite activities we think could be perfect for family fun in the sun time.

1. TARGETS, BATTLESHIP, THROUGH THE LOOP, whatever you call it this fairground inspired fun maker is super easy to put together. A bucket full of balls and some boxes, bowls, pots and hoops to throw them in. Make some points on the side and see how you go.

2. SOMETIMES A CLASSIC STAYS THAT WAY FOR A REASON - because they’re actually a lot of fun. Kites are great to make and decorate, and whether you have a windy hill or just run around the backyard, the thrill of flying is always a little magical. See how to make this one!

3. FOOD MEETS GAMES IS ALWAYS A FUN TICK IN OUR BOOKS. All you need for this picnic game is a fabric blindfold for the players and some bowls with mystery foods for the guessing. Melon balls, rice krispies, something just a little bit gross (ketchup and grapes is a good combination). Whatever keeps them wondering.
