Outdoor Party Games for Kids

happy birthday to me! Shawn here and today is my birthday and
I thought I would give you seven outdoor party game ideas for kids to
celebrate my birthday. If it’s raining where you are and you want some indoor
game ideas come back next Wednesday for some indoor game ideas. While you
are here, I would love for you to consider subscribing to my channel by
hitting that red subscribe button down below. If you are a subscriber and you
aren’t seeing my new uploads (I post every Tuesday and Wednesday)
then make sure you ring that little bell. It lets you know when my videos upload
Tuesday and Wednesday. If you hear any babbling, that is my almost 8 month baby
girl sitting right over there. Let’s get into this video. Donut on a
string is a classic party game that will have everybody rolling in laughter as
you try to catch that donut with your mouth. Here I’ve used floss to hang
the mini donuts from the string that’s just attached to our yard swing. The bigger donuts probably would have worked better and lasted a little bit
longer but all I could find was the mini donuts at
the target. so there you have it. Building Cup towers is a lot of fun and actually
difficult especially if you are trying to build towers on a windy day like my
son and I were here. We used index cards to make it a little bit harder, to
balance the cups on. You could also practice pulling the index cards out and
having the cups to stack themselves by pulling the index cards out. It
was way too windy of a day for us to try that so we were just building towers
with our stacks of cups. You’ll notice that they fall a lot but this is
a really fun party game. If you don’t have a index cards, you can simply just
stack the cups, the Solo cups, up as high as you can get them. That can be another fun party variation of the stacking cups. Here are my husband and
son doing marshmallow wars with marshmallow launchers. DIY marshmallow
launchers. I have a whole video on marshmallow launchers and how to make
these. But you just fight with mini marshmallows and shoot them at each
other. I mean what is more fun? This would be an awesome party, birthday party game
with a lot of kids. I will link that DIY in the card up above. I’m leaving the
bubble wrap noise in this game because you can bubble wrap hopscotch. It’s
not fun if you don’t have the popping sound when you’re playing. Here’s my husband and son playing Head
shoulders knees and cup. As you can see, my husband and son are playing head
shoulders knees and Cup. You just have one person call out and you take turns
between the two of you calling out the head shoulders knees and Cup and whoever
grabs the cup first is the winner. Pool noodle charades is a lot of fun at
parties. Here my son is trying to be a bunny rabbit. Here I am trying to be a
penguin. You just use pool noodles to act out your typical charades and you
can work together in teams as well. Here my husband and son are trying to be a
rhinoceros but I have a whole other video on games using pool noodles that I
will leave in the card up above as well as in the description box down below. Frisbee twister is a fun game. Assign a
different point value to each of the colors: green 100 points, yellow 200, blue
300, and red 400 points. Toss your frisbees.
This is classic twister with a twist. The board has a part where you have to raise
your leg or an arm or something up in the air as well as put your feet or your
hands on the dots. I hadn’t really planned to include this in the video. We were
just playing for fun here. I pulled my back out after this video at
some point. I apologize for the bad angle. Don’t forget to come back next
Wednesday for some indoor game ideas for kids just in case you’re having a birthday
party or you need to move your kids indoors to play some games and you need
to entertain them for some reason indoors. I’ll have some game ideas for
you then. thanks for watching!
