Capture the Flag, Kick ball, Tag, Slip & Slide, Sardines, etc.
Exert fun and challenging energy with these games. Each one is a classic and a favorite.
This is a classic, of course! Do you have a projector? Or a drive-in theatre close by? You can creatively switch this up.
What local trails can you explore? Maybe pack a dinner, or snack, and enjoy your extended “backyard.”

Maybe this is something that you do already as a family. But if not, this can be a special outing.
