Playing in the dark
Older kids who aren’t super excited about backyard games might just be up for games that are played outside in the dark. Grab a few flashlights or headlamps and head outside to play one or more of the games from Happy Mothering. Or, head over to Amazon to purchase a light-up Capture the Flag set. Play a game of kickball with a lighted ball, try lighted corn hole set or just use glow sticks on a regular corn hole game.
Any game is more exciting in the dark. When everyone is tired out, turn off the flashlights and rest up while gazing at the stars.
