7. Wheelbarrow races
A wheelbarrow race is one of the most competitive outdoor party games that involve two players racing. One of the players acts as the driver while the other takes the role of a wheelbarrow. The “wheelbarrow” walks on hands as the driver holds the ankles. Once a “GO!” Has been given, the wheel starts racing up to the finish line. However, if they happen to fall along the way, they have to go back to the beginning of the line. It is more fun if you are two or more sets competing against each other but still one set can do the trick.
8. Three-legged race
A three-legged race involves two participants attempting to complete a short sprint with the left leg of one runner strapped to the right leg of another runner. The target of this game is that the partners will be able to run simultaneously all the way to the finish line by beating all the other contestants. The first pair that crosses the finish line is the winner.
9. Grandmother’s footsteps
This game is suitable for the youngsters aged 3 years and above. The objective of this exciting game is for players to creep up on grandmother and none of them should notice a movement. The adult helper will take the role of a grandmother and stands in front the children, her back facing them. As the grandmother remains in her position, the children begin creeping towards her. She then all of a sudden turns and all the children must stop moving. The ones caught in action have to stop and go back to the start line. The children continue with the creeping and the first one to touch grandmother takes the belt.
10. Popcorn Drop
If your child is having a birthday party and you need some ideas for outdoor party games then this is a worthy consideration. To begin with, you make two pairs of shoe cups. Use a pushpin to poke holes in the bottom of plastic cups. Push a wide rubber band through the holes, and secure it inside the cup with a paper clip.
Divide the party into a number of groups. The starting player ties the cup around her shoes and then uses it to draw popcorns from a bag on end. She moves with this up to the other end where she fills an empty basket. The next players follows suit immediately she dumps her popcorn. The end of the game is marked after one of the bags gets empty. The amount of popcorn in the baskets of individual teams determines the winner.
