Capture the Flag! I played that with my kids at summer camp. Too much fun! Kickball, pickle, slip-n-slide (you can do this cheaply with a tarp, a hose and dish soap. Just make sure your ground is clear and flat), Hide and go seek. Oh boys are so much fun! Enjoy it!

Water balloon fights are always fun, for the boys AND mom & dad Buy a big bag, fill em' before the boys come, put them in a water filled cooler so that way they won't pop.

It's great the sleepover is happening in the summer...so much to do! Supersoakers are fun, make your own slip n' slide, etc. For dinner, we've always had fun roasting hotdogs, and then when it got dark out, it was fun to make smores and do sparklers. (although a lot of adult supervision was required for the sparklers!)

Anyways, have fun..kudos to you for letting five boys sleep at your house!!

How 'bout some kind of "treasure hunt" in the back yard? Bury some little box with some treasure in it and give them maps with clues. Not sure the logistics of this, but I got the idea from our friends who are doing it with their grandsons this summer.

You are brave.
