8 Must have garden games for summer


The weather. It’s something that, as Brits, we moan about a lot. You have to understand if you are reading this in another country, weather is something that unites us in it’s shitness over here in the UK… we have rain in Spring, rain in Summer, wind AND rain in Autumn and often rain that turns to black slippery ice instead of snow in Winter. I feel like you should be getting the vibe of rain. A lot.

Despite this awesome wetness, we do have those sporadic weeks that are filled to the brim with sunshine, and because it’s such an enigma to us we are outside like crazy people right from the crack of dawn screaming “sun, get on me!” and throwing our children at the paddling pools that we left out to be filled with rain water… there is truly nothing better than getting in the garden, especially over the summer holidays which are imminently approaching, much to the despair of neighbours everywhere.

The paddling pool, for all its rain-filled glory, only carries a certain clout, so I’ve added more variety like a garden chess for kids, alongside Jumbo Connect 4 and a Canvas tipi wigwam.

Snakes and Ladders giant garden game £39.99

Garden chess set £47.99

Jumbo Connect 4 £89.99

In the ground 6ft trampoline £199.99

Canvas tipi wigwam £67.99

Personalised rounders kit £25.00

Colour in picnic blanket £37.00

Wooden crochet set £23.75

So what are your favourite garden games? Do you follow the philosophy of “chuck em outside and love the sun?”

    The weather talk is always a good way to start conversation here because it is usually horrid. I am not much of an outdoor girl.

    I used to love playing rounders as a kid so I wouldn’t mind the personalised kit. We Brits definitely unite on weather talks
