It's that time of the year again and we're are loving these warmer days! Bring new life to your summer with these cool and easy activities you can do with family and friends that will beat boredom at any time!



Step up your game with some of these easy ideas to make your yard games even better:

  • Water balloon pinatas: This twist on the traditional pinata game is super fresh! We guarantee you'll have so much fun while fighting the heat away! You will just need a few balloons and rope. Fill the balloons with water and then hang them on a tree branch with some rope. Invite family and friends to the backyard and cover their eyes with a blindfold. Bust the water balloons with a stick and enjoy!

  • Rope Course: A rope course will keep your kids active and entertained! The best thing is it doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive! It is also a great opportunity for you to be creative!



    • Kick croquet with hula hoops: Do you have some old hula hoops gathering dust in the basement? Well, it's time to give them new life! Cut the hoops in half to make wickets. Grab a beach ball and let the fun begin!

      • Make a real life version of Angry Birds: This is our favorite idea so far! Here's what you'll need:
        • Boxes
        • Spray paint (We recommend brown, blue and gray)
        • 5 green balloons
        • 7 large bouncy balls (We recommend you get these bouncy balls in the colors of the angry birds characters: Red, yellow, white, black and light green)
      Let's get started! Paint the boxes with the spray paint to make them look like ice cubes and stones. You can even add more details to the boxes with the brown paint, by painting cracks on the boxes. Now, onto the bouncy balls! Customize each ball with the characters' faces by printing a template of each face and then drawing them or pasting them on the bouncy balls.  To make it more fun, use a launcher to make those birds fly! You will need 2 people to hold the straps, so taking turns it's recommended, so everyone can play. Just like in the mobile game, each player will have to launch the full set of birds before moving on to the next player. Whoever can knock down the most bad piggies wins!
