Garden Games and Activities
Even with the unpredictable British weather, there’s nothing like getting outside for a good afternoon of garden games and activities.
If you’re planning for a posh picnic and considering games that are more suited for adults, or whether you’re looking for a day of family fun complete with the latest children’s games, this collection of garden games and activities is sure to have exactly what you have in mind.
There’s plenty to consider when it comes to investing in new games for the garden. If you’re arranging a more adult affair then it may be worth considering classic games like petanque, quoits or even croquet. Not only do these have a retro charm and come in many new designs and styles, they also require limited physical activity so can easily be played alongside a glass of wine and some good conversation.
On the subject of retro charm, there are also some great options for garden games and activities that cross the age gap and can be enjoyed by all age groups. These include fun games like giant Jenga, Connect 4 and even dominoes - a real twist on some old family favourites. Another advantage of these games is that you won’t need to worry about explaining complicated rules, as they’re very straightforward.
For older children or even adults who are looking for something a little more energetic, why not consider garden games and activities like swing ball, archery or mini golf. Sometimes these kits can take a little more setting up, but they’re sure to bring hours of fun and will help to keep the kids entertained while the adults relax.
If you have younger children there’s a real wealth of choice when it comes to garden games and activities, with new ideas always making their way into the market place. Consider investing in an at home ‘ball pit’ for children to play in, or kids’ bow and arrow sets for more active outdoors fun. For something more sedate, you can even get children’s favourite board games in larger, out door designs.
