Embrace the heat here in Oceanside, CA by heading outdoors and playing a game with friends and loved ones at Capella at Rancho Del Oro! Today our blog post has a few ideas for games you can try for an exciting afternoon.
This is a hilarious game that keeps the energy high and the friendly competitiveness going. Plus, all you’ll need is string and balloons. Each person playing will have a blown up balloon attached to each of their ankles. Once you’re ready to play, everyone goes around trying to stomp on the other players’ balloons, forcing them to pop. When each of a player’s balloons is popped, they’re out of the game. Whoever is left standing wins!
Ultimate frisbee is great for anyone looking to work off any extra calories they may have consumed at your picnic or barbecue. Find a frisbee and divide into two teams to play this twist on soccer. You can also play noncompetitively with the disc by tossing it around a group of friends or having your dog run after it.
With just an old can you can have a lot of fun running around, hiding, getting caught, and using your abilities of stealth to save your fellow teammates. This variation of tag and hide and seek has one person being “It”. Place the can in the middle of the playing field. Whoever is It closes their eyes and counts to a number while the others hide. Once the person who is It tags a player, they go to a designated area for captured players. But the fun doesn’t necessarily end there! Other active players can kick the can to release the tagged players. The game ends when everyone is caught in the pen!
