Are your children bored with playing the same old soccer or cricket game? Try tossing a Frisbee! The plastic disc adds a twist to familiar games, develops gross motor skills, develops strength and agility by throwing with both arms, and burns extra energy.

These Frisbee games are great ideas for you to play with the children:
- Throwing Race
Pair off into teams of two in this game. Stand a few feet apart and try to complete as many passes as possible in two minutes. The team with the most completed passes wins.
- Frisbee Flip
This activity has children pairing off and picking “top” or “bottom” of the Frisbee. Flip the disc in the air as you would a coin – as soon as it lands, the player whose side is facing up must run to a predetermined spot. The other player must try to catch them before they reach it.
- Water Transport Race
Fill the Frisbee with water and race towards the finish line in this game. But be careful! Move too fast and you’ll spill the water.
- Hula Hoop Frisbee Throw
For this game, hang four hula hoops from a tree. Each player gets five chances to throw a Frisbee through one of the hoops. Earn a point each time a Frisbee goes through the hoop.
- Frisbee Tag
Children love to play tag. Why not add a Frisbee to the mix? Divide the children into two teams for this activity. The team that’s not “It” passes the Frisbee to each other, keeping it away from the “It” team. Once the “It” team gets the disc, the teams switch roles.
- Frisbee Bowling
This super simple game is easy to play. Line up water bottles for bowling pins and try to knock them down with the Frisbee.
- Frisbee H-O-R-S-E
Instead of shooting hoops, use a Frisbee for this game of H-O-R-S-E. The first player creates a challenge, like hitting a target with a Frisbee. If they complete the challenge, everyone must try it. Complete the task and receive a letter until you spell H-O-R-S-E. Take turns being the challenger.
- Frisbee Bocce
For this game, players form a line. The first person rolls a tennis ball. Each player tosses their Frisbee, trying to land it on or close to the ball. The player whose disc is the closest gets one point – two points if their Frisbee lands on the ball!
- Frisbee Golf
Using numbered baskets, set up a “golf course” around the yard. Take turns tossing the Frisbee towards the “hole.” Just like golf, try to take as few throws as possible to land the disc inside the basket. The player with the lowest score wins.
- Frisbee Baseball
Trade your ball and bat for a Frisbee in this game. Just like regular baseball, teams try to earn the most runs. “Batters” throw a disc and run the bases. If a fielding player catches it, the batter is out.
- Ultimate Frisbee
Split players into two teams of seven. Like soccer, the aim is try to get the Frisbee into the goal. Toss the disc to a teammate to move it up the field but you must stop once you catch the disc.
Next time you need a new activity, try one of these Frisbee games! Your outside time is guaranteed to be filled with laughs.
