Are you looking for some fun backyard games at your next party that will be a crowd pleaser for kids and adults alike? Don’t sweat it! I have ideas that will be a hit!
A fan-favorite game for most people is cornhole. Depending on where you live, you may call this game bags or bean bag toss. You’ve probably heard of it before, and you might even have some friends who display signs that they are obsessed with cornhole. For cornhole, people divide into two teams, so it’s perfect for groups. There are two wooden boards that face each other from opposing sides of the yard. The general object of cornhole is tossing your bean bag into the hole on the board from behind a designated line, which earns you three points traditionally. Each team gets four bean bags to throw. Feel free to mix up the rules in a casual setting. Points are also awarded to players who get a foul, which is when the bag lands on the board but doesn’t go into the hole.
2) Jenga Giant
Are you someone who loves Jenga? Well, there’s a giant version of it! Because it’s so big, it’s perfect for outdoor play. These wooden blocks stack up over three feet high. The game feels larger than life. The general premise of Jenga Giant is the same as the smaller version that you can play indoors. Each player removes the wooden blocks one by one. The tower gets more precarious until it eventually topples over. The last person to touch the tower loses. But everyone feels like a winner with this game because it’s a total blast!
3) Balloon Darts
If you’re a DIY lover, you might want to play a game you can put together with your own two hands. Balloon darts might be the perfect game for you! All you need is a large foam board, balloons, and pins to fasten the balloons to the board. If you want to dress it up, you can even paint your foam board fun colors, which can be a great project for the kiddos! And if you’re planning a Dr. Seuss birthday party, you could even get themed balloons! Once you finish with your art project, you can fill the balloons and pin them to the board. You can make the game your own by assigning different point values to balloons. Guests can throw the darts at the balloons and pop them. Alternatively, you can assign prizes by the color of the balloons. There are many ways to make this game your own. Now you have three solid ideas for some fun backyard games to do at your next party! Which games will you try at your next get-together? Let me know!
