Games This year, don’t just scroll those sunny days away on your device. It’s about time we take back the pure enjoyment of the seasons that we wait all year to experience.
Even science is telling you to do so. Studies have shown that engaging in playful activities through adulthood can help lower stress, improve cognitive functions, and build social bonds with others, which is so much more than what your phone can do for you.
So what are you waiting for? Round up the family, grab one of these lawn games, head to the beach or backyard, and let the good times roll.
It’s like bocce … but sillier. Flickin’ Chicken is all about honing your aim to hit your target on the first try.
Toss the disc across the yard, and then flick your rubber chicken of choice to try and get it to land on the disc in the fewest number of throws, keeping in mind that it’ll likely bounce off-course.
Just take aim and try not to think about how ridiculous you look.

Supersized Pong Game (12 Buckets)
Let’s be honest: Playing beer pong in a cramped basement really loses its luster after a few too many balls roll under the couches.
This yard pong set, on the other hand, is a super-sized, outdoor-friendly yard game that is played by filling the red buckets up with water or sand. It gets the whole family in on the fun (though of course you can still play while clutching a koozie).
The 12 buckets are set up in two triangle shapes, allowing two teams of two players each to take aim at the opposite shape. When they make a bucket, the cup is then put off to the side. Everybody has their favorite variations on the rules, but the first team to sink balls into all of their buckets wins!
From the tabletop to the blacktop, this super-sized version of Connect Four takes this fun strategy game al fresco.
Two players at a time try to insert their red or blue coins into the wooden frame to form a vertical, horizontal, or diagonal line of all the same color! It’s way more challenging (and addicting!) than you’d think.
Never decide between a round of mini-golf and a game of beer pong again. Thanks to this amazing gaming fusion, no tailgate you attend will ever be the same.
Spend those sunny days stoically honing your aim with this horseshoe set — no sandbox required. Though this all-rubber set does come with two stakes, the flat-bottomed poles can be used instead, if you don’t have a grassy or sandy spot available.
While these rubber horseshoes aren’t quite as hefty as the traditional metal type, they’re still great to have on hand at a backyard party for folks of all experience levels to try out.
Hone your aim with Bottle Bash, a flying-disc lawn game that tests your ability to knock an unbreakable bottle off its perch.Just stake the two telescoping poles into the ground at a distance from each other, steady the bottle on top, take note of the wind’s direction, and fling away! It all packs up into a mesh carrying case for easy travel and storage.
Collapsible Cornhole Set
This lawn game for adults consists of two boards covered with nonskid fabric, along with eight beanbags, and even a carrying case for easy carry and storage.
Though there are countless varieties of Cornhole sets available, we like that this particular one is collapsible and easily transportable. Plus, each board weighs a mere 4 pounds.
This updated glow-in-the-dark version of Capture the Flag is a thrilling lawn game that all ages can enjoy. The playing field is set up with illuminated markers that, as one reviewer put it, make your yard look like a “living video game”!Players hide illuminated green and blue orbs instead of flags, and must cross into enemy territory to steal their orb and bring it back to home base without getting tagged.
