Looking for fun garden games? We’ve lined up some great ideas that will keep your children entertained for hours.

“Mommy, I’m bored!”

Your children always look forward to the holidays … only to scream “Mommy, I’m bored” on the second day because they simply don’t know what to do with so much time on their hands. Time to step in!

3 surprising garden games

1. The gunpowder game

The gunpowder game is a kind of hide-and-seek, but with a ball. One of the children kicks the ball away, after which the seeker goes and fetches it. Meanwhile, the other children hide. Once the seeker has returned with the ball, they start looking for the other players. If they spot someone, they have to run to the ball and tap it before the other child kicks it away.

2. Water games

Children love playing with water. But unless you can keep an eye on them at all times, giving them water balloons to play with is much safer than letting them play in the pool. Just make it clear to them that throwing water balloons at someone’s face is a no-no.

Here’s another fun idea: why not let your children make a water tower or a viaduct from one side of the patio to the other using perforated plastic bottles and tape? The perfect way for them to let their imagination run free!

3. Chalk city

Another classic outdoor activity is curbside drawing with chalk. Even older children love to create their own chalk city on the curbside, with plenty of streets for their matchbox cars to cruise around in.

Bring the indoors outdoors

Not every child likes to play sporty and active games, and that's okay. But even more quiet children can enjoy the outdoors when the weather is great. Simply let them play the games they’d otherwise play indoors like drawing, playing with their dolls or Legos, … on the patio, on the lawn or in the shade of a patio cover.
