Top 5 Backyard Barbeque Games

Hi friends … its CeeCee here. If you’ve read my previous posts, you would know that I love to host parties in my backyard … birthday, barbeque, brunch, and many more. With Labour Day coming up and the summer coming to an end, it’s tradition for my family to host a barbeque soiree for family and friends. To keep everyone entertained, we usually have variety of games planned suitable for every age.


Who doesn’t love blowing bubbles? It’s simple, a little messy, but tons of fun … especially for the kids. My son just can’t get enough of bubbles! It’s also inexpensive and can keep people entertained for a lot longer than you think!

Jump Rope

“Bluebells, cockle shells, Eevie ivy over” … who remembers these rhymes? I was once the jump rope queen in middle school and I must say … I haven’t quite lost my touch yet. I love playing jump rope with my kids … not only do we get a healthy competition going, but I’m getting my exercise for the day.

Although this one isn’t for me (I still haven’t quite grasp how to get the kite flying high), but my hubby is great at it … he’s got the magic touch. Kids can spend hours trying to figure out how to fly a kite … and once they do, the smile of accomplishment on their faces is priceless.

Mini Bowling

My family is a little competitive, so we love to challenge our friends and extended family to a game of mini bowling.  It’s a great game to get everyone together for a few laughs.

Bean Bag Toss

Every child loves bean bags, so this year we decided to add a Bean Bag Toss to our collection of barbeque games. We bought it at Target and my monkeys are so excited to try it out.
