Another thing I like to do in the summer is take games night outside. Games such as Bananagrams works well out-of-doors (see above). While there might be minor hiccups with playing board games outside (wind can be a hassle), the benefits are certainly worth any possible issues. For example, the picnic table was a bit of an obstacle (tiles kept falling down the slots) but I ran home and got a large scarf to cover the picnic table and we were able to play without anymore issues.

But really, the options are endless. Combine with a picnic and now your summer is really hitting its stride. What board games do you like to play? Do you ever take games night outside, I’d love to know.
