10 Outdoor Games for Kids




Ok. So the weather here in Maryland has been so unforgiving. I mean, my sweat has sweat. My body is irritated with its own self. But I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to get outside and do something. We know pools, splash pads, and ALLLL of the in-between are going to be packed with literally everyone and their 5th and 6th cousins, twice removed. 

We also know that when it comes to getting kids outdoors it's not easy. Not when Netflix, Hulu and all of the other things they can do are easily accessible, full of everything to keep their mind busy and their bodies on the lazy. I know for myself, it's easier for my family if my boys burn off energy. And to think, they are only 3.5 and 1.5 ( what have I gotten myself into!) 

So, I sat down and between Google, Amazon & Facebook - I have narrowed down the Top 10 games kids will LOVE to play while outside. Shoot, everyone will love to play! So get some snacks, lots of water, some sunshade for when ya need it - fire up the grill and get ready to play outside!

    Call me a sucker, but honestly? I definitely have some nostalgia from when we (80's & 90's kids) used to have block parties and hang out on the stoop. My phone was the ancient VCR that literally never died and I remember riding that damn ankle kicker scooter and playing tag just because. I want my boys to do the same! 

    What are your favorite summer games to play!?
