Yard Games Tips

  • You’re Invited! One amazing way to use your outdoor games is to host a game-themed party! Whether you choose a family tournament or an all-out Olympics-style extravaganza, make an event around the competitions and give prizes to the winners.
  • Color It Up. Color-coordinate your games to the rest of your outdoor décor. Ledge Lounger makes this easy since you can customize colors on many of its games.
  • Wear Sunscreen. Don’t let sunburn ruin your day of fun. Prevent sun damage to your skin with your favorite waterproof or sports sunscreen. Make sure to reapply if you are playing water-based sports and games.
  • Stay Hydrated. Ever had one of those days when you get so wrapped up in a game or activity that you totally forgot how long you’ve been in the sun? Cool off and stay hydrated by having plenty of water nearby whenever you’re outside.
