Summer is the ideal season to spend time with your family and friends in the great outdoors. There are many fun night activities that you can play outside, whether at a BBQ, park, or even at home, to keep your nannusays and adolescents busy for hours! Here are five of our favorite outdoor activities to play at night that will keep everyone engaged!
1) Bobbing for Apples
Bobbing for Apples is one of the most popular games in the world. A bucket, some water, and apples are required for this game. Put a peeled apple in a bucket of water and have the kids take turns blindfolded trying to grasp it with their teeth. The more inventive you are, the better.
Gummy bears, marshmallows, and plastic spoons are examples of little things that can be used. You may make it more exciting by filling transparent containers with water or colored water instead of bobbing for apples.
2) Tennis (light)
Set up a wall with light-up rackets and tennis balls. This game is similar to traditional tennis, however, you’ll have to run and pick up your own shots in addition to serving and returning. The player who makes five shots in a row wins! The best thing is that it is safe for children of all ages and athletic abilities because no one is throwing or hitting the ball too hard. Just make sure you or another adult is there at all times.
3) Playing Dodge Ball
Are you searching for a fun method to get your nannu says some exercise? Then try including Capture the Flag into their regular playing. All you’ll need is a football, soccer ball, or any ball that can be seen well in low light. Two goalposts should be placed at opposite ends of a big field, with enough space between them for players to go back and forth without meeting.
The game should be played in two-person teams, with each player taking turns on offensive and defense to ensure that everyone gets a chance to score. If one team scores three points, for example, they must switch off and defend their goal while another member scores.
4) Capture the Flag
Spread out a huge, black blanket on a green area. Separate into two teams, giving each group a side of the blanket. Team members go out one at a time while the rest of the group hides beneath the blanket; they have to find a teammate to tag before heading back to home base. When everyone has been tagged or after 10 minutes, the game is over (whichever comes first).
5) Corn Hole
The game of corn hole becomes better with time. Since it doesn’t require a vast playing area and you can alter your boards to match any space, you can play this game almost anywhere. Two holes, sacks packed with corn, and buddies are all you need! You score one point for landing in an opponent’s hole or three points if you land your own bag in your opponent’s hole. The first team to reach 21 points wins! In case of ties, play overtime until there is a winner!
