Parents, you can stop that “I’m bored” talk with our list of 35 Family Friendly Games for summer. 24 Outdoor summer games and 11 rainy day games for indoors.
We have outdoor games for kids of all ages. In fact, I can totally see the grown ups taking over some of these games like the Human Hungry Hippos Game, Kerplunk, Bowling and especially the Caution Tape Maze.

We created these easy DIY Water Target Games in the summer of 2012 for a family event, before I started this blog. I saw the idea on Pinterest but couldn’t possibly find that post now. It’s an easy and inexpensive DIY project. You will need tarps, Duck Tape and Pool Noodles. We used badminton net poles to wrap the big tarp target around. To make it more fun we used water balloons to throw as well as more pool noodles to throw as spears. We also covered the tarps with dish soap and placed a water sprinkler next to it.
