Hectic schedules and a calendar full of Zoom meetings can make it difficult to spend quality time with friends and family.
No matter how jam packed your to-do list is, there’s nothing like a great outdoor party to break up the monotony and get the good love pouring in.
The best way to get an outdoor party jumping is with high-quality outdoor games, like those from Elakai Outdoor – that everybody is sure to love.
The best backyard games keep people entertained for hours on end, encourage a little friendly competition, and even inspire guests to enjoy some crisp fresh air. If you’ve never really put together an outdoor party with backyard games, it can seem a little overwhelming at first. There are a few things that you should consider first, then it’s easy breezy from there.
Here’s what you need to know.
Start with the guests.
After all, an outdoor party is all about the guests, right? The number of guests you have in attendance will help determine how many backyard games you should have available at your outdoor party. If you’ve invited 30 guests or more, you’ll likely want to have more than just a game or two set up. Of course, you don’t want to go overboard but it is a party. Keep in mind that not every guest will show up, either.
You’ll also want to consider the age of each guest. If a lot of your guests will be under 21 years of age, then you probably do not want to set up a social drinking game. There are several fun and entertaining games, like cornhole and horseshoes, which are fun for people of all ages. The horseshoes game has been around since Ancient Rome and the rules can be adjusted for younger players. Kiddos as young as 4 or 5 will have a ball playing with more experienced guests.
Factor in weather and location.
It should go without saying but weather and location will have a huge impact on your backyard games. Consider which way the sun is facing when you set your games up to ensure guests can play comfortably without the sun beating down in their face or blinding them. If you have some shaded areas, you may want to consider utilizing those for some of the games, depending on what the temperature will be during your party.
You’ll also need to consider the terrain. Some games may require flat or smooth terrain while others don’t. Spend some time thinking about where you will serve food, which areas you will utilize for games, and how you will keep score. A portable scorekeeper from Elakai Outdoor is fun and easy and completely transparent. Plus, there’s no searching for pen and paper or trying to keep it from blowing away in the breeze.
