Outdoor Party Games
Bring the Party Outside!

three people laughing, grouped with their heads together as on a team sport huddle.

Get excited to play these outdoor party games! When the sun is out, who wants to stay inside? Not me! I live in Washington State where we have to take advantage of every sunny day.

Being a certified ropes course instructor has allowed me to test many outdoor activities. I am sharing my favorites.

Not all of them are competitive, some are merely for the fun factor. Many of the activities listed on one page could also be played at several different kinds of events. I have tried to cross reference these pages so you have the best possible chance of finding the perfect party game for your next event.

Try some of these activities as team building events. You can use them just as easily at the corporate level as you can at the family level. Youth and grown ups will enjoy the well organized outside entertainment.

If just having fun isn't enough motivation to get outside, how about your health? A recent study called Child of Our Time done by the BBC has made the observation that children who play outside laugh more. Did you know that laughter gives the hearts and lungs a work out? It also helps the immune system fight off colds and viruses. Plus, playing outdoors can reduce the risk of heart disease, certain types of diabetes and obesity.

If you live in the Northwest like me, let's not forget that natural vitamin D comes from the sun and we need every bit.

So go outside, play some games, enjoy the laughter...and the added health benefits.

We only played the Christmas ABC game tonight, but it was fun and funny! I have 3 more games and quizzes that I will take to my parents' house on Saturday. Thanks again!!
