Make the most of your yard this summer with Lafleur!

29 June 2022
Looking for fun things to do outdoors with your family or a bunch of friends? Lafleur has the perfect line-up of things you can do in your own backyard this summer so you won’t be bored for a minute! How about some music for a bit of atmosphere in your yard? Check out our fun playlist on Spotify!

Sardine hide and seek

The rules of the sardine hide-and-seek game are simple. To start, only one child will hide while the others count to 30. Then the children go in search of the hidden child, the sardine. When a child finds the sardine, he hides with it. The other children who find the sardine also hide with it until there is only one child left searching. This one is the loser and he will become the sardine for the next round.

Treasure hunt

To make an interesting treasure hunt for children, you can base it on a theme that your children enjoy. For example, dinosaurs, princesses or superheroes. Then you can hide objects related to the theme you have chosen. Children can also dress up according to the theme to make it even more fun.

Obstacle course

There are several ways to organize a children’s obstacle course. You can put hoops of different sizes on the floor and the children have to jump from one hoop to another. You can race with a sack of potatoes and see which kid gets to the finish line first. You can create a zigzag path with chairs and the children have to run around them while dribbling a ball.
