Ultimate frisbee is great for anyone looking to work off any extra calories they may have consumed at your picnic or barbecue. Find a frisbee and divide into two teams to play this twist on soccer. You can also play noncompetitively with the disc by tossing it around a group of friends or having your dog run after it.



Looking for a fun game to keep you on your toes? Try badminton. This fast-paced game will test your hand-eye coordination and keep you moving. The rules are simple and it is a game that pretty much anyone can play.


Corn Hole

Corn hole is a great outdoor game that is perfect for all ages. You can make your own set or purchase one online if you don’t have one. If you want to make one yourself you’ll need a jigsaw, measuring tape, a compass, plywood of different sizes, and a few other items. Visit the DIY Network to find out how to make this game and everything else that you’ll need.


Glow-in-the-Dark Capture the Flag

If you don’t think you can take the midday or late-afternoon heat, try a game that works well in the evening, when the sun has lowered and you feel a little less sluggish from the heat. Use large glow sticks in place of your flag for this easy twist on a classic game.
