That’s an awesome idea and one I hadn’t thought of. 

Kids are usually pretty good and finding ways to play outside even without extra toys, but the addition of a ball or two, bubbles, and the like makes it even better.

Is there an area where they can write/draw with sidewalk chalk?  Maybe a frisbee could be fun?

ONe other that we used to play a lot as kids was bean bag tic tac toe.  You throw bean bags at a tic tac toe board and try to score an X or O. 

I’ll be interested to see what other folks come up with.

i love the bubbles idea…just imagine the pictures!

i would stay away from balls/frisbees/other things that are thrown, just because you don’t want them hitting the other guests or taking out the cake or something. is it all grass, or could you bring some sidewalk chalk?

I hadn’t thought about this…but now that you mentioned it. I think I will do a coloring table, hoola hoops, bubbles (which I will probably play with too b/c I LOVE bubbles), outdoor bowling, and maybe horseshoes? I have a family of big kids so I am sure even the adults will be coloring and hoola hooping Laughing

@missmouse29: oh man…I used to LOVE these when I was a kid. Hmmm…maybe I can use them as the “centerpiece” for the kids table and then they can take them home?

I used cryaons and stuff for coloring, bubbles, pin wheels, puzzles, jump ropes, glow sticks (which were such a hit once it got dark) and a few other little things like that. I tried to stay away from anything messy (i had visions of my 3 yr old nephew coming up to me and getting paint or something all over my dress)  or that could be thrown or kicked and with my luck, hit an old lady in the head.

@Mrs. Meowerson: my nieces and nephews are too rambunctious for frisbees. Centerpieces would be broken, people would be hit, definitely no frisbees for me =)
