No, we didn't make this one up, but we wish we had!! It really is National Backyard Games week this week (google it!) and to celebrate we thought we'd share some of our favorite backyard games!
You can never go wrong with carnival games in the backyard.Bring the flair of a state fair or circus to your house with traditional games like Fat Cat, Big Mouth Bean Bag Toss, Hi Striker (how high can you hit it?) or Ring Toss.
There's also tons of Field Day Games & Races you can do to relive your childhood. Choose from Tug-of-War, Spoon Race, our Wacky Trike Race , Obstacle Course, Watermelon Eating, Seed Spitting, Pie Eating (or throwing!), Hula Hoop Contest, Sack Race, Water Balloon Toss and lots more! Do it yourself or get an entertainer called a "Games Wizard" to get the games organized and entertain the crowd with jokes, trivia & extra games & challenges.
We're also got games like horseshoes, volleyball nets to quickly turn your backyard into fun. For a bit more flair, bring in our putt-putt golf course & have it set up for a family get-together.
And if you've got a really big backyard, our Human Hamster Balls are one of the most fun games we've ever seen. Race your friends and family around the yard in these enormous balls to see who's faster!!
Whatever you do, find a way to celebrate National Backyard Games Week!
