Over 30 Outdoor Summer Games to Play with the Kids…
My kids only have six weeks left of school. I can’t believe how fast this year has gone. Summer will be here before we know it. I love having them home with me. I love not making lunches in the morning, or finding matching socks. It’s going to be so wonderful. That is…until they get bored. Then it feels more like mommy summer camp. I’m going to need ideas.
Don’t these look like fun? The kids will have a complete blast this summer and I’m guessing so will the kids in the neighborhood!
Here’s one of our favorite Outdoor Games that’s perfect for a family reunion…

- Each person on each team is assigned a number 1-12 or however many you have on a team
- When your number is called you face off with the opponent with the same number
- Teammates can help, but can not make the goal (getting the ball across a line)
- All of this is done by walking on hands and feet – like a crab
