Hey there, parents! 

Are you always looking for fun, engaging activities to keep your kids busy and active? You're in luck, then! Right outside your door, there is a world of adventure and sunshine waiting for you. 

We've rounded up six fantastic outdoor games that your kids will absolutely adore. Not only do these games promise a ton of laughter and joy, but they also offer an excellent way to burn off some of that boundless energy kids seem to have.

So, grab your sun hats, slap on some sunscreen, and let's dive into a world of sunny adventures and endless fun. Here are the top six outdoor games your kids will love:

1. Obstacle Course 

Who says working out has to be dull? If you set up an obstacle course in your backyard, your children will have so much fun that they won't even notice how much exercise they're getting. 

Set up Monkey bars, hula hoops, cones to run around, and even a mini-trampoline. Vuly offers a fantastic range of outdoor play equipment to keep your kids engaged and active. 

By doing so, you can keep the kids occupied and in shape while also getting your recommended daily intake of vitamin D. Also, feel free to participate in the excitement of the obstacle course; it's a terrific way to connect with your children.

2. Messy Art Attack

Messy art is always a hit with the little ones. Take it outside, and you're golden! Cover your backyard in old sheets or newspapers, and let your kids' creative juices flow. 

You can use washable paints, chalk, or even food colouring mixed with water for this activity. Your kids will love getting their hands dirty to create vibrant masterpieces on a large canvas. 

You'll avoid cleaning up the house mess. So everyone wins. Be sure to photograph their bright masterpieces before hosing them down in the backyard.

3. Water Balloon Toss

Another outdoor game that never fails to entertain is the water balloon toss. Fill up some balloons with water, and let your kids throw them back and forth until they burst. 

This activity can be played in teams or individually, making it perfect for playdates or siblings' fun bonding time. Also, it's an excellent way to cool off during those hot summer days.

Plus, the cleanup is super easy - just pick up any leftover balloon pieces and spray down the area with a hose. This way, your kids can have a blast without you having to stress over the mess.

4. Stumps Tug of War

The age-old game of tug of war is as fun as ever. A few tree stumps and some rope are all that's required.

Split the youngsters into two groups and have them compete to determine which group can pull the most weight. It's a great activity for fostering cooperation, stamina, and healthy rivalry.

You can play this game with any sturdy stick in the ground instead of tree stumps. Just make sure to supervise and guide your children on proper safety measures.

5. Lawn Twister

Twister is a classic game that kids of all ages adore. Make it an outdoor activity by creating a giant twister board on your lawn. To make the circles, all you need is some spray paint and cardboard.

Your kids will have a great time trying to twist their bodies into different positions while avoiding falling. After you've finished playing, just use a hose to remove the spray paint.

In addition, lawn twister is an excellent way to develop your child's balance, flexibility, and spatial awareness. This way, they can learn while having a blast.

6. Dunk Bucket

On those super hot days, a dunk bucket is a fantastic way to cool off and have some fun. All you need is a large bucket of water suspended above someone's head.

Take turns tossing balls to hit the target and release a cascade of refreshing water over whoever is sitting below. Mix in some plastic toys or sponges for an extra splashy effect.

Plus, you can customise the target to fit any theme or interest your kids have. Whether it's superheroes, princesses, or animals - the possibilities are endless.


Overall, these six exciting, energising, and sun-drenched outdoor games are guaranteed to put a smile on your children's faces. Not only will these activities keep them entertained, but they'll also encourage physical activity, nurture creativity, and promote teamwork. 

So next time your kids say they're bored, why not take them outside for a game of Obstacle course or a fun-filled round with the Dunk Bucket? Don't let the joy of these sun-kissed moments slip away.
