Let the Games Begin
Every four years, the Summer Games provide the perfect excuse to rally your family for some good, old-fashioned outdoor activities—and a little healthy competition. You don’t need much to pull off these games: just a few easy-to-find props and some open space, whether a backyard, a beach, or a swimming pool. For best results, choose challenges that play to a variety of strengths and abilities, and remember—you don’t have to wait four years to do it again.
