The summer will fly by when your children play these fun summer games!
It is no secret that summer is a favorite season for kids all over the country. No school, no homework— just long afternoons full of fun in the sun and play dates with their friends! However, once the excitement and the freedom from school has lost its freshness, it’s easy for kids to fall into a summer rut of playing video games and watching TV all day long.
However, why not break up the boredom and repetitiveness of long summer days by crafting up some fun backyard games with your kids? Not only do outdoor games get your children outside in the sun and away from the dull TV, but it also is a great chance for your entire family to bond and make summer memories. You can even set up these games at your next backyard BBQ or summer party as a way to entertain the kids while the adults chat it up!
Therefore, without further ado, here are our favorite outdoor summer games that you can craft up in your own backyard this season!

If you ask him what he wants, he’ll probably say he doesn’t want anything at all. If espionage won’t work (asking mom), you can always fall back on the tried-and-true tie. But this Father’s Day, instead of opting for the same-old, try out something new. Here are a few ways you can make your dad’s special day one to remember.
