Summer has finally arrived and although it may look different this year, that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun! Whether you’re staying home with immediate family or inviting over close friends, we’ve got some ideas to make the most of these months. Here are three fun activities to try in the backyard to make your summer a little more enjoyable.
Up Your S’mores Game
Having a bonfire and roasting some marshmallows to make s’mores is a standard summertime activity. Take it up a notch this year with unique s’mores recipes. Try using chocolate or cinnamon graham crackers. Replace your milk chocolate bar with white chocolate, or get extra crazy and use a Reese’s peanut butter cup.
Take Board Game Night Outside
Instead of having a game night in the living room or at the kitchen table, set it up on your patio instead! Make sure you have plenty of light so you can easily see if anyone tries cheating! Bring out a bar cart or side table to hold drinks and snacks so you don’t have to keep rushing inside between turns.
Get Competitive with Yard Games
Make teams and start a tournament for your favorite yard games. Need ideas? Some of our favorites include giant Jenga, giant Connect 4, ladder ball, lawn darts, bocce ball, and bean bag toss. Keep the same teams or switch them up each round to find out who is the best of the best!
