Classic Outdoor Games to Play With Kids
Looking into some fun ways to get your kids outdoors this summer? Look no further than your own childhood for ideas of games you played that are still a blast for kids and families today. We’ve rounded up our favorite “classic” – think perennial, not OLD – games that you can get at Target to keep everyone engaged in some summer fun!
They've made these a lot safer since my day...this set also doubles as Bocce set, too! Play the classic game of lawn darts by setting up the target rings and then let em fly! Or switch to bocce darts, a new version of lawn darts with a bocce twist. Toss the pallino dart and see who gets closest!
A good game of badminton brings out everyone's competitive streak! Set includes poles & net, 4 racquets and 2 shuttlecocks. It also features a scoring system on the poles so that you never miss a point! Six ground stakes are also included for added stability. When the fun is over pack up all the components into a traditional carry bag for easy storage.
The set comes with lots of game ideas, or you can invent your own! 10ft. Diameter and 12 handles, so 2 to 12 kids can get in on the game! Take turns racing under before it hits the ground. Put plastic balls on the parachute and keep them moving! Includes a 10ft. Diameter parachute with 12 handles, 16 plastic balls and a clear vinyl tote bag.
Easy to learn and great for coordination, this set includes two small balls attached to a string. Stand back and then toss yours around the ladder-shaped goal to earn points based on where it lands. Comes in a handy carrying case!
Capture the Flag
Of course you don't need anything for this game except two flags, but this cool set includes two light-up bases to keep you playing past dark!
Light Up Jump Rope
Break out your best skills - double dutch, anyone? This light-up jumprope makes skipping fun - just hold under any light for 20 minutes and it glows for hours!
Sidewalk Chalk (Hopscotch)
Draw your hopscotch hands-free and old-school with this bucket of sidewalk chalk! This kit holds 3 chalk sticks, 4 pieces of egg shaped chalk, 1 star chalk holder and 12 corresponding ball shaped chalk pieces, 3 chalk holders AND 4 awesome stencils. Also for every Yoobi item you purchase, a Yoobi item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S.
11 Inch Wooden Lawn Bowling Set makes the perfect outdoor game. Best played on short grass, sand or flat areas, this 10-pin set with 2 wooden balls is fun for bowlers of all ages and skills!
