The Activities
The outdoor setting is the perfect venue to play these games:


Scavenger Hunt
Go to Divisoria, buy trinkets, and put them inside plastic eggs (or create your own alternative). Make sure you have more than enough for everybody. Ask someone to hide the items and start hunting when given the go signal. After the game, everyone gets a souvenir or two from this memorable barbecue!

Crazy Relay
Instead of the usual kiddie calamansi relay race, make it extra difficult (and all the more fun!) by including more tasks to complete one round. Include balloon bursting, polvoron eating, crawling under a desk, jumping over a high string, and any other fun ideas you may have to ensure a great time.
