The ultimate outdoor games edit
Posted on June 15 2020
Now that summer is over, browse our games and activities collection for ideas on how to keep the little ones busy.
Following the suspension of all football matches due to lockdown, the Premier League is on its way back, with the big kick off set for June 17! Now the professionals are getting back on the pitch, there’s plenty of inspiration for us all to get out there and take on our own sporting challenges. Here’s our edit of the very best outdoor games and sport sets for children (and big children!) available from Party Pieces...
2 in 1 Pop Up Goals
These pop up goals provide the perfect set up for keenly-contested family matches and mini-tournaments. Much better than just sticking down jumpers for goalposts, these goals are easy to put up and pack away, can be secured to grass with metal pegs and come with a carry bag for easy transportation.
Holidays abroad may prove difficult this year, so why not bring a touch of the Continent home with a boule set? Perfect for playing in the garden or a quiet patch of park, this set comes with wooden boules that are light enough for anyone to throw and the rules couldn’t be simpler (nearest boule to the jack wins!)
Junior Croquet Set
During lockdown, croquet has enjoyed an unlikely revival due to the fact that it’s a great game for our socially distanced times. You don’t need acres of space to have a go, it’s easy to pick up and - with this junior set - all ages can get involved. It includes six wooden boules, a pastel-coloured jack and beautifully finished birchwood mallets. Let battle commence!
If you want something that’s less of a sport and more of a party game, but no less competitive, you need this inflatable limbo set in your life. Again, this is a game that works well for social distancing and it always goes down a storm with kids and big kids alike at summer parties. The only question that needs answering is, how low can you go?
Pineapple Blast Sprinkler Game
2020 has already seen plenty of hot days in Britain, and when the sun is shining children love nothing more than a bit of sprinkler action. Add to the fun with this inflatable pineapple sprinkler game that involves ring tossing and all participants getting soaking wet.
We hope you enjoy playing outdoor games this summer. If you buy a Party Pieces item, don't forget to tag us on social media @partypieces in your photos - we love to see you having fun!
