Are you looking for a fun way to pass the time during the summer?

You might not think to consider your backyard as the perfect venue for a summertime activity, but you’d be wrong! There’s so much you can do with your family to have an amazing time outside and enjoy summer fun.

But what should you get to make your backyard more exciting? Some fun backyard games can make the summertime more fun for everyone. Here are some awesome backyard games you can try out this summer.

DIY Giant Jenga

All you need is some wood, a saw, and a hammer and you can create your giant version of the classic backyard game. Set the blocks up (making sure everything is balanced) for some serious competitive play!

Challenge your friends and family to keep the tower standing for as long as possible while they take turns trying to pull pieces without letting it come crashing down. As the excitement builds, watch out as the tower climbs higher and higher!

Get Creative With Water Balloon Tag

All you need are a few water balloons and some room to run. To play, each participant throws on their swimsuit and then divides into two teams. Each team will then hide in different places within the yard.

The goal is to try to have someone on your team throw a water balloon at a member of the other team without anyone on their team throwing it back. Everyone will get wet, so be sure to take turns and give everyone a chance to be on the throwing team.

After playing, everyone can go straight to the pool and swim. If you don’t have a pool, you can get an above-ground pool that can be set up easily. Click here to learn more about above ground pools, and the shapes and sizes you can choose from.

Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag requires two teams, two flags, and a designated area. To begin, each team hides a flag anywhere in the playing area. The objective of the game is for each team to capture the other team’s flag while simultaneously defending their flag from capture.

Players can move around the playing area without leaving the boundary, and when a player is “tagged” or their foot touches the boundary, they become “in jail” until they are rescued by a teammate. Teams win by either capturing the opposing team’s flag or by successfully returning their flag to their original hiding spot.

Spice It Up With Ladder Golf

Simple to learn, Ladder Golf is a fun game of skill that’s suitable for all ages and skill levels. Played with two ladders and three bolas, players take turns tossing their bolas onto the ladder rungs to score points. The first player to reach 21 points wins.

It’s a thrilling and competitive game that’s easy to play but hard to master. Best of all, setting up Ladder Golf is a cinch and it can fit into even the tiniest of yards. It’s a great way for everyone to enjoy outdoor time together!
