Under the Moonlight: 7 Exciting Nighttime Adventures to Ignite Your Outdoor Spirit

When the sun sets, the world transforms into a captivating playground waiting to be explored. From stargazing to moonlit hikes, immerse yourself in the thrill of the night. Discover seven exhilarating activities that will ignite your sense of adventure and leave you with unforgettable memories under the moonlit sky.

Glow-in-the-dark tag

This is a classic game that can be played with kids of all ages. All you need is a few pieces of glow-in-the-dark tape and some creative thinking. You can use the tape to make a boundary, create a maze or even make a giant hopscotch board.

Treasure hunt

This is a great game for kids who love to explore. Hide some small treasures around your yard or neighbourhood and give your kids a list of clues to help them find the treasure. You can make the game as easy or difficult as you like, depending on the age of your kids.

Shadow puppets

Shadow puppets are a great way to entertain kids of all ages. All you need is a light source and some hand-drawn puppets (or you can use household items like forks or spoons). Turn off all the lights in the room except for one lamp and then hold your puppets up to the light so that their shadows are cast on the wall or ceiling. You can then use your puppets to put on a shadow puppet show for your kids.


If you live in an area with little light pollution, stargazing can be a fun and educational activity for kids. Use a star chart to help your kids find constellations, and don’t forget to bring some binoculars for an up-close view of the stars.

Scavenger hunt

A scavenger hunt is a great way to get kids moving and exploring their surroundings. Create a list of items for your kids to find, such as leaves, rocks, flowers, etc. You can make the game as easy or difficult as you like, depending on the age and abilities of your kids

Glow-in-the-dark frisbee

This is a fun game that can be played in the evening or at night. All you need is a frisbee and some glow in the dark paint. Simply paint the frisbee with the glow in the dark paint and then head outside to play. The game can be played with just two people or with a group.

Flashlight tag

Flashlight tag is a classic game that can be enjoyed by kids of all ages. To play, one person will need to be “it” and will need to have a flashlight. The rest of the players will hide somewhere in the dark. Once everyone is hidden, “it” will turn off the flashlight and count to 100. “It” will then try to find everyone else using only the flashlight. Once “it” finds someone, they become “it” and the game starts over again.

Remember that when kids are playing in the moonlight parental supervision is a must and hey– why not join in on the fun?
