As fall approaches, it’s important to do all of your favorite summer activities before the hot weather leaves us. It means going to the beach, lounging by the pool, and spending time with family and friends outdoors.
If you are wondering how to make these outdoor activities more fun, the answer is simple: lawn games. Whether you’re kicking a ball or throwing a beanbag, nothing is more fun than tapping into your competitive spirit.
To help you have fun in your garden, a lifestyle expert Meredith sinclair shared with Hoda and Jenna six fun lawn games that people of all ages can enjoy. Challenge your friends and family, create memories and enjoy the summer with these must-have products, from shuffleboard to giant Jenga.
This personalized picnic blanket is the perfect form of entertainment for lounging in the backyard, on the beach, or even in the park. Coverage includes four classic board games, including checkers, noughts and crosses, points and a target. One side of the blanket is soft fleece while the other is waterproof polyester. While game pieces aren’t included, you can use anything to play with, from rocks to seashells to toothpicks.
When it comes to Giant Jenga, bigger is really better – and more fun! The starting height starts at 26 inches and can be stacked five feet high. A total of 54 blocks are included in the set and each block is almost 15 times larger than a classic Jenga block.
A fun and easy game for the whole family, this collapsible set is perfect for barbecues, picnics, parties and more. Compared to traditional boards, these are much easier to store and install. To start playing, simply unzip and slide into the mounting post and you’ll be good to go in minutes.
Shuffleboard is a classic game that never goes out of style. The colorful brewing area is made of high quality indoor and outdoor mats with a non-slip backing so that it is always secure. The set also includes two wooden cues and 10 wooden washers.
This inflatable soccer set takes backyard fun to the next level. Once deflated, this set is easily transportable so you can take active fun with you wherever you go. In addition to the bright blue and orange goal, this set also includes an inflatable soccer ball, net and four stakes.
This game is best described as a kickball-volleyball hybrid, but it also goes by the names of juggling and sepak takraw. The game is played by juggling the ball and passing it to your opponent without letting it bounce more than twice from your side. This set is portable and comes with a convenient carrying case.
