Fun Outdoor Party Games & Activities for Kids

As of late, I’ve been making a lot of lists on here, and here’s another. Summer time is such a great time for kids to have parties…think school field day, VBS recreation time, and the ever popular end of the year school party. Even if you’re on a budget, you can still plan a fun party for your kids. There are a number of games and activities that you can plan that are cheap or cost nothing at all. Here’s a list of ideas for you…
