Did you know there are actually yo-yo competitions? Who knew hacky sack could be so ultra cool? The Kidzworld crew has profiled five off the wall sports to help cure your boredom blues. Check out Kidzworld's top five list of wacky sports.

1

Bowling

When was the last time you went for a roll at the local bowling alley? Bowling is the best thing since peanut butter and jelly. Also, fashion tells us that the shoes have gone from hideously ugly to funky fresh.

Hacky Sack

Did you know that hacky sack is actually a recognized sport with championships? It's the perfect entertainment when you're waiting for the bus or just bored on a sunny day. Another name for the sport is footbag.

Yo-Yo

The simpler the game, the more fun it is. Yo that! Like hacky sack, you don't need special equipment to play yo-yo. All you need is, well, a yo-yo. You can pick one up for under five bucks at most dollar stores. Soon you'll be walking the dog all over the block and we're not talking about Fido.

Trampoline

Another rad sunny afternoon alternative sport is the good ol' fashioned trampoline bounce. But you know, it doesn't always have to be a sunny day to play. Once you have the basic bounce down you can move on to double back flips and frontal twists. Nuttin' says fun like fear!

Mini-Golf

You might think golfing is just for old people with bad clothes but there's really a large following of well dressed young people addicted to golf's alternative - mini-golf. How can someone resist playing on a course that has obstacles like giant shoes and sailboats in the middle of it? Plus, it's freakin' cheap. Don't slag it 'til you've tried it.
