We’ve been getting into the Olympic Spirit at GLTC HQ and have heaps of ideas for outdoor games and fun alfresco. Perfect for the garden or a park near you, we’ve picked these favourites for the whole family.
It’s easy to set up your own Mini Golf (£28) course in the garden with this simple putting game – It’s universally appealing for all – and much cheaper than a round at your local course!
Get in some sneaky practice or just have some good old fashioned fun with these classic sports day races contained in the ‘I Love Sports Day’ set (£50). Try your luck at the Bean Bag Race, the Three Legged race, the Sack Race and the Egg and Spoon. We think it’s better to make a fool of yourself in your own garden than in front of all the other parents after all…
Surely races on Stilts (£35) should be an Olympic sport? We think so!
Giant Snakes & Ladders! (£40) Time to get in the game! The players are the counters in this huge version of the classic game- you move up and down the snakes and ladders at the whim of the huge inflatable dice.
This superb & wooden Family Croquet Set (£45) set is a real family treasure because it contains mixed size mallets – now everyone in the family can play.
For the winners! Medals (Pack of 5) (£6)
Plus your games don’t even have to be sporty – everything from bed making to eating their greens is a lot more fun with a medal at the end of it.
Includes: Set of 5 satin medals with neck ribbon.
And after all that activity it’s probably a good time for a picnic. Or at least it will be with this gorgeous padded blanket from (£24). It has a water-resistant backing and will lift your picnicking spirits on the dullest of days – the large one is plenty big enough for a few friends too. Be sure to see our packed lunch and mealtime helpers also.
Enjoy the opening ceremony tonight – we can’t wait for the games to begin at GLTC HQ!
Good Luck Team GB!
