Some old School Outdoor Activities which needs to be done again.
School Outdoor Activities-Nothing compares to the fun we had while we were kids and back then we had a list of options we could do outdoors. Yeah, those ideas seem to be little old school now but are equal fun as they were then.
Didn’t you enjoy those fun activities? If yes, then get back to them sometimes and let be called old school because somethings don’t get old ever.
Here’s what all we have been missing out for quite sometimes.
This is ideal to do with kids, of course, but also in just adult groups. You may even like to build your own kite. Keep it simple by just going outside in your own grounds, or have an excursion to a nearby park.
And this is not just for women! Many organizations sponsor these, and you can attend. Or you can host one yourself. Invite a few or many friends. Does your home (or your community building) have a garden? Set it up the old-fashioned way with table cloths, fancy napkins (paper goods are fine if they are high quality and decorative), china, vases of flowers, fancy sweets or savory snacks.
A more casual version of outdoor eating, it can be hosted in a yard, on a patio, or as an outing to a park. If you want to keep it simple, do a potluck (if your guests are able to cook).
You can include easy games in some gathering you would organize. Games are also a wonderful means of exercise. If you are planning a group function, consider prizes! Depending on mobility and physical health, here are some favorite senior games for outdoors:
Some of these outdoor activities need a little mobility. Active, but more low-key than tennis. You can play across a sidewalk or path too, if you’re playing just for fun.
There are sets that are both sharp and stick into the ground, or not sharp.
Lawn or patio bowling
Best to use on a flat surface or really short grass. This is simply a plastic bowling set that is set up and scored in the traditional manner, except it’s outdoors
Beach ball volley
This is played with several teams of two people. Each team of two has a beach ball. Throw it up and start volleying it back and forth (you can determine the distance between the two people). Whichever team keeps the volley in the air the longest, wins. Another version is a leader calling out the name (or first initial) of player, and the person with the ball must toss it over to them.
Frisbee target toss
Set up a net and attach an item in the middle to serve as a bullseye. It can be as small as a paper or plastic plate, or as large as a towel, depending on the players. (An actual target would be ideal, if available). Players take turns throwing the frisbee at the bullseye. Whoever hits it or is the closest, wins.
The water makes a great backdrop for outdoor activities. Well, there are a lot of options in a nearby park to enjoy the water and the sun.
So many of us likes doing it and some perhaps are skilled at fishing. And they love to share their fishing tips (and stories. This is a relaxing way to get outdoors and socialize. Bring along some food and drink. And make sure there is someone who knows how to handle the gear, hooks, and fish!
Botanical garden or conservatory
Gardening is one of the all-time favorite outdoor activities, including for those who don’t actually garden. But they do enjoy the results! Strolling through a garden is also a very good way to get a little exercise. If your town does not have its own public garden, consider a trip to a nearby city that does. Many also have a restaurant, sometimes a zoo, making it an ideal day trip.
