Family gatherings are a natural part of the summer season. While some families are content relaxing with some cool drinks, others need to get in on some action-packed games. Check out some of these fun family yard games recommended by us here at Russell Honda!
Every family knows the game Twister, but did you know that you don’t need the plastic mat to play it? Use some circular stencils and spray paint to create your own twister board right on the front lawn. It’s a simple, fun family yard game that everyone will enjoy!
Giant Lawn Pong
There’s regular beer pong, and then there’s taking things to the next level. Giant lawn pong gets rid of those little red cups and replaces them with massive trash cans. Arrange them in a similar fashion and use volleyballs instead of ping pong balls. If children are joining in, simply leave out the alcohol aspect of the game.
Water Balloon Dodge Ball
Imagine playing dodgeball without the lingering sting of getting hit with a rubber ball. Switching out the dodgeball with water balloons and get ready to dodge. Make sure to set some ground rules, like not aiming for people’s faces, to prevent any accidents or injuries.
Making seasonal meals is a great way to celebrate the warmer weather and sunshine that summer brings. Fortunately, there are plenty of summer meal ideas and recipes that can get your family in the mood to enjoy the season and all it has to offer. We here at Russell Honda know of some of the best summer foods that you can make at home.
Penne with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto

Chicken Watermelon Tacos
Chicken and watermelon probably isn’t a combination that you’ve heard, or even thought of trying. Fresh watermelon makes for a delicious treat in standard tacos. Simply replace the tomato (and follow the straightforward recipe) with watermelon for a juicy meal the entire family will love.

Shrimp and avocados tend to go hand-in-hand, so why not mix them into a delightful salad? The recipe is pretty simple and easy to understand, provided you know how to make shrimp. Add more vegetables to make the meal a delight no one will soon forget. It could quickly become a seasonal tradition!
