10 Fun Games for Warmer Days
With warmer days on their way, here is a list of 10 fun games to get you outside and enjoying the beautiful weather!
- Red Rover
This is one of the best outdoor games provided you have enough people. The players split into 2 teams and each team joins together in a line and holds hands with the people next to them. The teams take turns saying, “Red Rover Red Rover send (insert name here) right over”. The person who was called tries to break away from their line and join the opposing team. If they can’t they stay on the same team. The teams take turns until one team has all the members.
- Red Light Green Light Game
Who doesn’t like this game? The players start racing to the finish line while you yell out red light and green light. When you yell Red Light everyone has to freeze, if they don’t they are disqualified. Then when you yell green light they can start running again. This lasts until one person makes it to the finish line.
- Scavenger Hunt
You hide clues all over the area and give the players a start up clue to tell them where the next clue is .It turns out to be a clue to a clue to a clue ….. to the finish line. If you have a lot of players you can also separate them into 2 teams and see who can solve the clues the fastest.
This game is pretty easy; you simple toss a Frisbee back and forth until one person can’t catch it. When that happens the other person gets 1 point. You might also come up with some creative ways to use Frisbees.
Someone is “it” and goes around trying to tag everyone else. If they do tag someone else that person is “it” and so on.
- Hide and Seek Game
This game is similar to tag, only the person who is “it” has to close their eyes and count to 100. Everyone else can go and hide until that person finds and tags someone. Then that person is “it” and it starts all over.
In this game you simply put stakes into the ground and try to go through them to reach your goal. Whoever can reach the end in the least number of shots is the winner. It is kind of like golf only you don’t have to shoot the ball 200+ yards.
- Lawn Bowling
You roll a rubber ball down a field of grass and whoever gets closest to the target wins.
- Corn Hole
The game is simple: Two teams of players face each other and toss beanbags into goals 27 feet apart. The goals are slightly angled wooden boards with a hole in the middle. The game continues until one team chalks up 21 points.
- Jump Rope
Jumping rope is a fun playground activity as well as a great way to get some exercise and impress your friends.
