Playin’ Around: 10 Outdoor Games Perfect for a Long Weekend
The first three-day weekend and the unofficial start of summer is almost here. Get ready for those BBQs, picnics, and pool parties with these 10 games that you can buy or DIY.
2. Bocce Ball Set ($298): Pricey? Yes. But this bocce set from Terrain just might be the most beautiful one we’ve ever seen.
4. Ladder Ball ($60): No outdoor party would be complete without a game of ladder ball.
6. Joust Pool Game ($30): If you’re lucky enough to have a pool, channel your favorite knight of the seven kingdoms with this inflatable jousting set.
8. Croquet Set ($248): If it’s good enough for the Heathers, it’s good enough for us. Oversized blazer and pleated plaid skirt not required to play (but highly recommended).
9. Badminton Set ($63): Good thing this set can withstand the weather. Once you put it up, you won’t want to take it down all summer.
