Family-Friendly Lawn Games to Enjoy This Summer

Warm weather activities are a bit different this year then we’re used to, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still have a good time with your family. These lawn games can be set up in your backyard and they’re sure to keep you entertained for hours.

Lawn Bowling Set

This 10 pin bowling set works best when played on short grass or sand and it means you can have a bowling night without leaving your home. The set comes with two balls, ten 8-inch pins, and a mash bag for storage.


Cornhole, a bar classic, is what we think of when someone says “lawn games.” Buy one or make your own with two wooden boards with a hole up top and a set of eight bean bags. This four player game has the players going back and fourth tossing their bean bags into the hole of the other team’s board.

Croquet Set

Another classic, that will bring you back to your childhood, croquet can use many players, making sure everyone in the family gets involved.

Bocce Ball

Often referred to as “Italian lawn bowling,” bocce ball is one of the oldest and most played lawn games. Up to eight players on two teams, take turns throwing their balls as close as possible to a smaller target ball, earning points for their team.

Jumbo Connect Four

Bring this favorite board game outdoor with a jumbo set. Younger kids will have tons of fun putting the huge pieces into the board and things are bound to get competitive.
