Outdoor Party Games Everyone will Love
Capture the Flag: I have the best memories running through the neighborhood playing Capture the Flag with your friends! First, you’ll need to grab some flags, or two bandanas, or even some old cloths. After that, the fun really starts!
Hula Hoop Competition: Let’s see just how well you can move those hips! For this game, gather your close friends and some inexpensive hula hoops, and see who can hula hoop the longest. You’d be surprised just how much of a work out it really is!
Three-Legged Race: Choose your partner wisely for a three-legged race! We suggest grabbing your spouse. You two should be well in sync with each other already, don’t you think? On better thought maybe not.
Croquet: This old-time classic is still sure to be a hit! Not to mention, it’s another great game to teach the kiddos!
Ladder Golf: Opposing teams take turns throwing 3 bolas on the varying rungs of the ladder. The first team to 21 wins! You’ll love this one if you’re looking for something simple and unique!
Volleyball: With or without a net, you can volley a ball in the backyard with your family or friends. However, to add a little friendly competition, set up a net and create a two-team tournament! This is definitely one of our most fun outdoor games!
Tug of War: Flex those muscles! Grab a rope out of the garage and see just how strong you really are!
