Summer is always fun period for kids. The school is over, sun is shining brightly, birds are singing… Just a fairy-tale for the little ones since they have lots of spare time and can dedicate it to entertainment. Moreover, now there is a possibility to spend time outside every day except for the rainy weather.
But for the parents, summertime doesn’t sound as so much fun. They need to constantly keep an eye on the kid, make sure he or she doesn’t get into trouble or doesn’t get bored. And this is not an easy task, especially considering that summer holidays last for a whole 3 months!
Of course, there are lots of popular games and every parent has something hidden for “emergency situation” too. But kids get tired of the games they know sooner than you can imagine. And if children are bored, parents are the ones who will suffer, especially at times when you have guests over. That’s why you should have some extra game ideas. And you don’t need to search internet for that since the most ridiculous and fun games were already collected here for you.
There are games that are loved by people and have been played for years. Like chess and tic tac toe. Leave the idea and the rules, just change the size of the figures! Create a whole patio in your backyard for playing chess and a board for tic tac toe will be an old tree stump! This way make your backyard a territory of fun and it will definitely be unique comparing to all your neighbors.
Another great idea, that will satisfy not only your children, but you and your friends as well is creating a whole movie theater in your garden! This is a nice way to spend family evenings.
For the little ones, put a chalkboard on the grass. This will not only be fun activity but educational as well.
Other interesting ideas are patio scrabbles, bowling, swings, darts and many-many more!
