Outdoor Tic Tac Toe
I recently stumbled across this idea from Chicken Scratch NY and knew I had to make it for Connor.
I painted the rocks and created the board on a piece of wood I found at Michaels. We’ve had so much fun playing this together. And I love watching Connor’s face every time he beats his daddy.
Glow-in-the-Dark Ring Toss
Ok my friends, It doesn’t get any better than this! Glow-in-the-Dark Ring Toss is AWESOME!! I’ve been stocking up on glow sticks every chance I get so we can play this as often as we can.
Flashlight Hide and Seek
This is another great game to play. We break up into teams of two or three and play with a big group of people who all live on our street. We have a blast every time we play and it is more fun to jump out and scare people:)
Nothing says summer like a water balloon fight!
Connor and his friends love to have water balloon fights.
My hubby usually gets out there and soaks them all before they can even throw their balloons which means they really just run around with balloons in their hands. Either way – they have a blast.
Nature Scavenger Hunt
I created a fun scavenger hunt that we can play together this summer when we go on walks or when we are bored and need something to do. Download yours HERE.
Family Game Night
One of my favorite things to do together is Family Game Night. I LOVE sitting outside and playing games with my two favorite people.
I found this genius idea on Pinterest and had to share it because it’s perfect for small hands. All you do is take a pool noodle, cut off about 10 inches and cut it down the center so it will lay flat on the table. Then cut it down the center again but only about halfway. Now children have a place to set their cards instead of having to try and hold them all. This makes playing games so much easier.
And there is nothing better than a cool, refreshing drink on a hot, summer day. I’ve never been one to buy a lot of juice and we never drink soda but I don’t mind buying Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters Flavored Water Beverage and Capri Sun Super V Fruit and Vegetable Juice Drink.
During the summer I keep my fridge stocked with Capri Sun for Connor and his friends. They come running in and out of the house and can quickly grab one. All the kids love the way it tastes and I love that Capri Sun juice drinks contain no artificial flavors, colors/dyes or preservatives. Capri Sun juice drink pouches also now have clear bottoms because Capri Sun listened to requests from their customers.
