Outdoor Games Perfect for the Summer - #TRUPowerUpFun

Looking for some summer fun in the sun? Get your kids away from the screen and outside with NERF blasters!


Summer is practically here and that means lots of time is going to be spent outdoors. Play equipment and trampolines only go so far when it comes to keeping the attention of little ones. There are several outdoor games perfect for the back and front-yard this summer. Games perfect for the entire family. This summer, Toys"R"Us, Hasbro and Duracell are teaming up and want you to share in the summer fun with Nerf! The kids got to experience the NERF N-Strike Elite Terrascout Remote Control Drone Blaster and the NERF N-Strike MEGA Mastodon Blaster, and what fun they had. Today I want to share 5 games that you and your family will want to play while outdoors.



Kick ball

Playing kick ball is fun for kids of all ages. If they are really little, you can start by teaching them how to kick a ball. Older children can enjoy playing kick ball by kicking the ball back and forth to each other.

Jump Rope

Jumping rope is a classic game that kids have played in their backyard for years. It’s very inexpensive and lets your kids get rid of ton of energy.

Obstacle Course

Setting up an obstacle course for the kids in the backyard is the perfect outdoor game for the backyard this summer. You can use what items you have to make an obstacle course in your backyard.

Red Light Green Light

Get those kids active and let them have fun while playing Red Light Green Light in your backyard this summer. Designate one person as the “stop light” and they are in charge of telling others ‘red light’ or ‘green light.’ If the player keeps moving after the stoplight has said STOP, then the person is out.


Tag With Your Nerf Blasters

This is the perfect game to get your kids involved in. Allowing them to run around and play tag is great exercise and awesome time filler. You can even mix up the traditional game of tag by adding your own rules to the classic outdoor game. How about getting it even more intense and get those Nerf Blasters out!


The NERF N-Strike Elite Terrascout Remote Control Drone Blaster is one of the hottest toy on the market right now. It features live video feed and remote controlled blasting. Comes with 18 Nerf Elite Darts and can also record your battle. Mikael had a blast but mostly kept his eyes on the screen while his good friend Jaiden ran around with the MEGA Mastodon Blaster. Together they tried tagging Madison with their blasters while she ran around trying to dodge the darts.

The MEGA Mastodon Blaster is also another great toy rapid fires 24 darts up to 100ft from a rotating drum. While it is slightly heavier, it's a lot of fun! You can find these and all Hasbro Nerf Blasters at Toys"R"Us.


However, in order to keep the tag going you're going to need Duracell batteries which you can also pick up at Toy"R"Us along with your Nerf Blasters.
