Are you looking to host the perfect summer block party this summer? Good old-fashioned group games for every age, including cornhole and other toss games, make a great addition to any outdoor summer event. Here are some of our top picks for backyard party games to make your home the ultimate fun spot this summer. Some of these games are also ideal for the beach!
Potato Sack Race
Sack races, also known as “gunny races,” have been popular at carnivals since the early 1800s, and they’re still great fun today. All you need is a large sturdy pillow case or burlap sack for each contender that reaches just below their waist and plenty of space for them to hop to the finish line.
Perfect for any age group, cornhole games require just one free hand and good aim. All you need is a set of cornhole boards and some cornhole bags. Set the boards up on a flat surface about 27 feet away and get tossing! A tournament can take your backyard party to the next level.
This fun outdoor game can be traced back to the Roman Empire and can be played on the grass or at the beach. Standard bocce balls can weigh up to two pounds, so this game is better suited for older children, teens, and adults.
Yeehaw! Round up your cowboys for this classic backyard game. Rubber horseshoes are much safer, and much more kid-friendly than the traditional metal ones. Place two stakes about 40 feet apart from each other and let the games begin!
If you’re on the lookout for cornhole equipment to get your outdoor party started, look no further than Custom Corntoss. You can get customized boards and bags, or choose from a premade design. We also offer accessories like cornhole lights and scoreboards to take the game to the next level.
