5 Awesome Backyard Activities

5 Awesome Backyard Activities

We’re all about lazy days in the backyard, but after a while, all that lying around can leave us feeling a little, well, lazy. So we’re stocking our yard with a few classic outdoor activities to keep the good times rolling all summer long.




Bocce Ball Set

Hands down, one of the classiest lawn sports out there. Bocce ball is the perfect activity for large or small groups and you won’t break a sweat playing!

Terrain Bocce Ball Set, $298.







Paper Kites

Though not exactly a game per se, flying kites gets you up and out of your hammock and into the sunshine. And you really can’t beat the relaxation of watching your kite soaring in the summer breeze.

Anthropologie Paper Kite, $64.








Croquet Set

We’ve had a soft spot for this sophisticated game since discovering it in Alice in Wonderland, but we can assure you, no one’s losing their head at the end of a heated round.

Swiftflyte Advanced Croquet Set, $85.







Horseshoe Set

This relaxing game is great for a big group of people, and best of all, you can play with a drink in hand!

L.L. Bean Horseshoe Set, $69.











Badminton Set

Looking for a fun and social workout? A rousing game of badminton will have you running across the court, and having a great time doing it.
