When entertaining at your home during the summer months, everyone seems to be drawn to the porch. And sometimes nothing goes better with a porch side cocktail or tall glass of sweet tea than some good old fashioned competition, especially for the kids.
To make your next gathering more enjoyable, we want to share some fun games to play in your porch:
- “There once was a skunk…”: One person in your party begins a story by saying, “There once was a skunk who…,” finishing the sentence however they wish. The person then points to someone else in the group who continues the story with a new sentence starting with, “Fortunately…” That person points to the next who adds to the story starting with “Unfortunately…” The game continues as long as you can, rotating between sentences starting with “fortunately” and “unfortunately.” It’s a fun challenge to make each person start at the beginning!
- Telephone: This game is fun for kids and adults alike to play, and it can be particularly interesting for adults when cocktails are involved. One person starts by whispering a brief message into the next person’s ear, and the message is passed person to person until the final recipient says the message aloud. If you’re playing with a large group, you can imagine there are some pretty hilarious errors made!
- Two Truths and a Lie: Everyone sitting on the porch says 3 things about themselves with 2 of them being truths and 1 being a lie. The other players have to guess which one is the lie. This can be a great ice breaker!
Often, the best summer days for playing games on your screen porch are the rainy ones. And the best way to keep the rain from coming into the porch and ruining your game is to add screen porch shades.
