If they had their choice, most kids would rather play outdoors than inside their homes. But sometimes finding exciting and interesting games to play can become routine and repetitive.
Activities such as bicycle riding, roller skating, playing Frisbee, and using a backyard swing set can get boring, even for hyper-energetic kids. But there are few proven games like family fun bowling nearby almost every kid will love to play once he's introduced to them and he learns how to play.
Cereal Box Bowling
This is one of the most creative outdoor games imaginable. Kids need to take over to one outdoor location their clear boxes of cereal from their homes. A large rubber ball is also a component of this game, but a standard volleyball could also be used with equal effectiveness.
This game needs to be played on a hard surface such as a driveway or a wide walkway. The kids then stack all the cereal boxes the way a set of ten bowling pins are stacked up.
They stand back behind the boxes approximately 20 feet. Each child then proceeds to carefully roll the ball at the boxes. The kid who knocks down the most boxes on each roll accumulates the most points for that roll.
