Summer is finally here, which means the days would be hotter now. We are listing a few outdoor games for kids to play all summer long. The list has been devised by home cleaning Overland Park professionals. The list is for both the parents and the kids.
Frozen T-Shirt Race- This is a great game to play on a sweltering day. Soak a bunch of t-shirts in water, place them in plastic bags, and then stick them in the freezer overnight. The next day, hold a race to see who can “defrost” and pull on a frozen t-shirt the quickest.
Slide and Toss- There are no two ways about the fact that slip and slides are fun, but turning one into a game? Even better. Throw yourself down the slide, stand up, spin around, and try to get a frisbee through a hole to earn points for your team.
Fishing for Marbles– If you have long toes, they are bound to come handy for you while playing this game. You stick your feet into a tub of freezing water and try to pick up as many marbles as you can using your toes.
Giant Jenga– This is a very interesting game. Use 2×4 pieces to make a super-sized version of the famous stacking game–be sure to get out of the way when the tower starts to fall!
Bean Bag Ladder Toss– It is an easy game to set up and play. Just grab a ladder from the garage and toss bean bags through the different rungs to earn points.
Picnic Basket Relay– This is a game which should be played in teams. The game involves teams who compete to see who can set up a picnic first (lay down the basket, set up the silverware and plates, etc). When one player finishes setting it up, they rush to get everything back in the basket and then pass it off to the next player.
Glow in the Dark Bowling– Add glow sticks into ten bottles of water to make bowling pins you can use at night.
Glow in the Dark Capture the Flag
Spaghetti Scavenger Hunt– Pie eating contests are both messy and hilarious but they tend to make people feel ill from overeating: this game allows you to have messy food fun *without* gorging. You hide small items (like gummy bears) in giant plates of spaghetti, set the plates down on a tarp-covered picnic table, and have the contestants search for them–using their mouths!
Blanket Run– This is a game for both parents and kids. Grab some blankets and attempt to pull your kid across the lawn as fast as you possibly can.
Watch your Step– This game involves players having balloons tied to each of their ankles and everyone runs around the yard trying to pop other player’s balloons using their feet–whoever keeps their balloons intact the longest is the winner.
Sponge Launch- There is no person who does not like playing with a sling-shot. In this game, you use one to launch wet sponges at your teammates, who catch them and wring them out into a bucket. The team that fills their bucket with water first, wins.
Cup Races– Use an arsenal of water guns to propel plastic cups down a rope track.
Hope these game tips can help you pass the summer smoothly and can be great for the kids who are having their vacation right now. You can also look up the internet with regards to how to play instructions or steps concerning these games.
