We are off on holiday on Saturday, but this summer our garden has been used more than ever before due to the lovely weather and I wanted to share some of the games which we have been playing in the garden. I have also been have a good look at All Garden Games and we are currently lusting after a crochet set for the garden, However, you can have just as much fun in the garden with what you already have at home.
What with the Olympics last year and the Athletics world championships just having been on TV, my boys are obsess with all things Athletics. They have been using a frisbee as a discuss and trying to do the longest jump. They also have running races and replay races with friends.
Anything in the garden can become part of an obstacle course and my boys have this off to a fine art. They set a course with the swings, small trampoline and washing line and then set each other the challenge to finish it first. They have to jump over the trampoline, do 10 swings, run four times round the whirligig, climb under the table etc.
Both the boys have had great fun playing tennis in the garden since being inspired by Andy Murray and his win at Wimbledon. We have lost lots of tennis balls, but it has been more than worth it to see them improve and have so much fun.
Bubbles are a huge hit in my house. We make our own bubble mix and the boys can play with them for hours.
I know that I am not alone in having children that are obsessed with playing with water. So we have planty of water guns and we all having fights together. We also love water bombs and anything to do with water in the garden. I know that my boys would have a blast in Mummy Mummy Mum's garden, just take a look at the fun their have with water.
