We are having a picnic themed reception so I want to have lawn games for the guests. There will be plenty of kids so I think this would help keep them occupied as well. I’m thinking of having:
- Washers Toss (similar premise to horseshoes, but tossing washers into a box with a cylinder in the middle for points)
- Cornhole Toss (bean bag toss)
- Ladder Ball
- Bocce Ball
I also happened upon a game that looks fun, but I’m not sure about it. It kind of looks like Skee Ball for the yard.

Oh and I’m NOT doing this one, but it sure looks like fun! Thought you might get a kick out of it. Apparently it’s called “shishkaball.”

Somewhere on the Bee are pics of a party with life size connect four and jenga games. Maid/Matron of Honor and I are contemplating them for a couple’s shower.

I’d be excited about the Cornhole, being a Midwest gal myself. 😉 Great ideas! I think that sounds like plenty of choices. Your guests will have so much fun!

I LOVE Ladder Ball. They make a glow in the dark version too.

We were planning on bocce ball on an adjacent lawn during our wedding. We might add in a couple of other games, but they need to be easy enough for the young kids (our child-guests are all in the 4-6 year old range).

@LuckyClover: Haha those sound awesome! I’m going to have to try and find that now just to see how that would even work.
@GroovyHippieChick: Huh that’s neat. I’ll have to think about getting some glow in the dark paint if we DIY them.
@MrsLulu: I think most lawn games should be easy for them to play. Whether or not they have the patience to play them properly would make a difference though lol. One of FI’s nieces is 5 and she seems to be at that age where she just wants to make up rules as she goes along.

@FloretteLiz: Yeah, my six year old is SO rule oriented that he will play correctly, but my four year old will just get bored after 5 minutes. I’m hoping that there will be a group to play with my son and the babies/toddlers can be engaged with bubbles and the babysitter. lol
