Outdoor Games

Is it a bright and sunny day outside, but instead of being out there and enjoying it, you’re inside bored out of your mind? Well I got a solution for you! Here three games to play outside with a few friends!


For this game you will need a small or a larger group of friends who are ready to get sweaty! This game is a lot like Hide and Seek, but much less childish. Split your friends into two teams, the Runners and the Hunters. Next, pick a spot in your area of play that could be used as a “home base.” This “home base” is what the Runners must eventually get to in order to win. The Hunters must chase down the Runners and tag all of them to win. To make the game more fun give the Runners about a minute to run and hide somewhere so that the game is more intense when the Runners are being actually hunted. This game should be preferably played in a large area, much like an entire neighborhood or park for a full effect. So, if you have some friends up for a fun thing to do this is a sure fire way to have some fun!

Extreme Frisbee

Do you like frisbee? Do you like flag football? Do you like EXTREME things? Well then, sounds like this outdoor game is for you and your friends! This game requires either a small or large group of people, preferably in the even numbers. To start off, grab some rags or flags and tuck them into your back pocket, also grab a frisbee! Separate your friends into two teams and position yourselves as if you were playing football, also pick a two spots to be goals. Now, the game plays almost exactly like football except with a frisbee as the ball. To start off you would have a QB start behind your teammates. The QB would call hike and then pass the frisbee to a teammate. In this game you can pass the frisbee as many times as you like between your teammates, the only way to stop the frisbee carrier is to pull off their flag. Run to the other team’s goal to score! That’s the basics to the game! Set your own score limit and have fun!

Balloon Bonanza

This game was one of my favorites as a kid! The premise of this game is very simple, pop your opponents balloons! To set this game up, get some balloons, fill them up, and tie them to various spots on your body! the goal is to be the last one out of your friends to have a balloon or balloons on them! Try your hardest to pop every balloon on your friend! A simple, yet extremely fun game!

So, are you bored?
