Do you have a family vacation on the cards? How about some great ideas for outdoor games that will keep everyone entertained? It’s not just the kids who can have fun outside. From fun-filled crazy games to sophisticated ones that require practice, here are a few things to dabble in while you are on your next vacation.
Take to the greens
Make sure you pack a few golf clubs for sale before you set off on your family trip because this game is a great way to keep the adults entertained. If you happen to be anywhere near a suitable green, this is a great way to keep that spirit of competition going. You don’t need to be very serious about the game; you can also just have fun. Try to get non-players involved too so that they can get some first-hand experience and also have fun trying to make the perfect swing. The kids might get bored if any of them are travelling with you so get them to help you look for the balls and keep them on their toes!
Get those dunking skills on
If you really want to run around and sweat it out, head to the closest basketball courts. Many resorts and hotels might already have one within premises or they will give you directions to the closest sports facility. Up the game by involving teenagers and adults and kids all in the game and make sure that you have a couple of sureshot GPS players on your side. This will be a good way to end the day and work up a healthy appetite before you head off for an early dinner.
Board games aren’t boring at all
Who says that board games are to be played indoors on gloomy days? You can enjoy a great game of scrabble, ludo, chess, monopoly or even snake and ladders outside. The best part of having some good board games to hand is that every member in your family can take turns in the play. For this, divide into two teams and let each round be played by a different member. You will also need an “umpire” of sorts to make sure all the scores are in order and nobody misses or gets an extra hand.
Get in the water
It’s time to jump in the pool, sea, river or lake if there is a safe spot close to where you are. Apart from holding family championships in swimming you can also play some great water volleyball or even water polo if you know the rules. On the other hand, come up with something spontaneous such as a game of water bumble bee or catch-if-you-can. Just make sure that everyone takes things a bit slowly and do not slip while trying to make a dash for it in the water. The games that include running are safer played in pools where you have control over the environment. So get creative and have fun!
