Get ready to play outside as a family

The horseshoes come in a case with all the game parts.

On this last day of school, here’s an idea. Instead of kids that are playing on video games all summer long, let’s have kids that go outside and play.

If your kids or grandkids have never played classic games like horseshoes and washers, consider picking up a set.

Escalade Sports’ Viva Sol line is the classic games in wood finishes. Games include a resin bocce ball set, $119.99; a bean bag toss set in mini, $39.99, and large $239.99; a washer toss set, $79.99; a toss-a-ring game, $24.99; and a horseshoes set, $124.99.

Find them at Amazon.com and at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
