Between hot dogs on the grill, beer in the cooler, and chips on the picnic table, we all know how easy it can be to take in excess calories at those summer BBQs. But how about shedding a few extra calories instead? That can be easy too, and just as social as clinking glasses with your neighbor next door. With the 10 lawn games below, we guarantee you’ll fit in a few laughs while sizzling away some calories. Do an energetic victory dance once you win, and you’ll burn even more. And probably add another laugh to your day, too.
So as August kicks off this weekend, forget spending summer sitting around stagnate in lawn chairs. Invite a few friends over or meet at the park. And whether you want to become a croquet champ or you’re more of a frisbee fan, let the games begin.
