Summer has officially started and now BBQ season is here! We love to play games outside with our friend when we have them over for a barbecue, potluck, or get together. Here is a fun list of crazy fun outdoor games perfect for a backyard barbecue!
10 Best Outdoor Games Perfect for a Backyard Barbecue!
Yard Yahtzee – This is a cheap game to make and it will keep the kids (young and old) entertained for hours! Use a chalkboard or dry erase board to keep score!
Djubi Dart Ball – This game is a mix of darts and koosh balls (may be dating myself a bit with that reference!) This is another fun game for all ages that is quick and easy to set up and very portable for taking to a friend’s barbecue.
Backyard Scrabble – This Backyard Scrabble is a fun DIY project. This would be a great game to play with friends while enjoying a cold beverage, early in the barbecue of course while you still remember words 😉
Giant Inflatable Bowling – My kids would get a serious kick out of this giant bowling game. The ball inflates and I can see this quickly turning into a human bowling session!
Sprinkler Limbo – If the weather is too hot to handle bring out this limbo set to cool everyone off so you can keep enjoying the day! This is a quick and easy DIY and fun for kids of all ages! This would also be fun to throw at the start of a slip and slide!
DIY Ring Toss – I think this would be such a fun game to play at your barbecue. Heck make it a whole carnival theme and add a few more carnival games! The kids and adults will love this nostalgic game.
Zip Ball – This is a great one for a bbq and let me tell you why! Sometimes in a small space when boys act like boys and throw a football it gets out of hand! This will keep the ball contained while still allowing boys (or girls) to be boys!
Life Size Angry Birds – We have done this and I can tell you it was a huge success! The kids loved crashing into the boxes and then rebuilding! Such a fun and easy game! Yeah my kids quickly stopped throwing the balls at the game and just used their bodies, but since you use cardboard boxes there was no bodily harm done!
Scatter Outdoor Game – Set the numbers up and then throw to knock them down. Add up the total of the numbers that you knock down and first to 50 wins! An easy game to learn, great for teaching kids math skills.
Backyard Giant Board Game – What could be more fun than a life size board game. These handmade dice are adorable and they would really impress your friends let me tell you!
Poof Pop Fly – This might be my favorite of the bunch and let me tell you why. This throws the ball for the kids so you can sit and sip and chat with your friends while the kiddos go crazy. Sounds like my idea of a great time!
Outdoor Dominoes – These are so pretty and would be so fun to play with a group of friends. Gather your lawn chairs around to sit and watch the game unfold! The whole family will love this game.
