Going out for a picnic or camping is a great way to bond with your family. Rather than going to fancy restaurants or unhealthy fast food chains, it’s better to drive that big truck and go somewhere where you can enjoy the beauty of nature while spending quality time with your family. To make it more interesting, you can play some camping or picnic games that your children will surely enjoy!
You can adopt a common camping set, or you can think of something that is unique and ready to go; It doesn’t really matter as long as everyone in the family is having a good time.
Cornhole is a fun picnic game that includes 2 platforms with one hole each and bean bags. You can form two teams of two, or you can have a one on one battle. The platforms will be placed distant from each other (more like 20 to 25 feet). Players will stand right next to the platform (launch box) where they will drop their bean bag (4 for each team). The objective is to shoot the bean bag into the hole of the platform (worth 3 points) or at least place it on the platform (worth 1 point). After throwing all the bags, count the points for each team. The difference between the winning team’s and the losing team’s scores for that round will be added to the winning team’s score. The winning team will also pitch first for the next round. The first to get a score of 21 will win the game.
In addition to cornhole, there are also other kids camping games that are much simpler. The alphabet game is fun and energizing. You will ask children to find an object along the way that begins with each letter of the English alphabet. Another game that involves the alphabet is Noah’s Ark, in which each family member will mention an animal that they will bring to Noah’s Ark, and it must be in alphabetical order. If you made a mistake or were unable to name an animal, you will exit the circle. The last player in the circle wins. Scavenger Hunt is another fun game; all you need is a list of things you can find along the way (a feather, a pineapple, a white pebble). Each of you will just have to find everything on the list.
You can also play classic games like tag and hide. There are also plenty of bonding activities you can do, such as building a fort, building a sandcastle (if you’re on the beach), singing campfire songs (around the campfire, you can also sing folk songs), and telling stories.
