Garden games to do with the whole family

Who doesn't love spending quality time with their family? I know I do. Especially in the summer, playing games and spending time outside is a treat. This treat is made a lot easier with artificial grass as there is no worry about mud mess and maintenance.


However, this post is less about the grass, and more about ways to spend more time outdoors with your family. We had to mention it though, it is kind of what we do. Anyway, let's look at ways to have fun and spend time with your family in the garden.


Now that we've got the perfect artificial grass setup, let's dive into some exciting ways to make the most out of your family time in the garden.


The outdoor activities


1.Outdoor Movie Nights:

   Transform your garden into an outdoor cinema. Set up a large screen (or a TV), bring out some blankets and cushions, and pick a family favourite or a new release. Don't forget the snacks!


  1. Picnic :

   Pack a picnic basket with your family's favourite snacks and treats. Spread out a blanket, enjoy some delicious food, and soak in the sun. This simple activity can turn into a delightful family lunch and create lasting memories.


  1. Gardening Together:

   Get your hands dirty and involve the whole family in gardening activities. Planting flowers, herbs, or even vegetables can be both educational and rewarding. Watching your garden grow over time becomes a shared achievement.


  1. Sports :

   Organize mini sports tournaments in your backyard. From badminton and frisbee to football or even a friendly game of catch, there are plenty of options to keep everyone active and entertained. Include some prizes to up the stakes as well. This will be a great summer activity, and if you have artificial grass it can be enjoyed year round. Let the family games begin.


  1. Stargazing:

   Extend your outdoor time into the evening by stargazing. Lay out blankets and pillows, identify constellations, and share stories. It's a beautiful and bonding experience that can spark interesting conversations. Maybe if you have really young children or teens this possibly won't go the way you want it, you have been warned.


  1. Outdoor Obstacle Course:

   Design a simple obstacle course using household items. This not only adds an element of physical activity but also brings out the competitive spirit in a fun and light hearted way.


Remember, the goal is to create lasting memories and strengthen family bonds. So, whether you're engaging in lively activities or simply lounging together, the key is to enjoy the quality time spent outdoors with your loved ones. What are some of your favourite outdoor family activities?
