Teach all children to play games without batteries! They will always remember the fun!
I'm sure there are lots more that I have forgotten, but these are the ones that we played the most. Also we had indoor games like hide the thimble. That is pretty self explanatory. I don't remember having too many toys to play with, but I also don't remember ever being bored.

What are some fun games for 2-5 year olds can play outside at a birthday party?

I have been to lots of parties lastly and all the little
one had so much fun with a Piñata.
Walmart did carry them....
LOL they can hit it instead of each others.
We played "ice fishing" at our VBS this year. Take a large roasting pan fill it with ice and then put some colorful marbles in it. Have the children take off their shoes and socks and try to pick up the marbles with their feet. It will cool everyone off very fast.
Here is just one place I found games:
Google "outdoor games preschoolers" for MANY more...
Fill a large box with styrofoam peanuts. Bury presents or goodie bags in the peanuts. Let the kids dig until they find one. Blowing bubbles is fun. Dress up is fun-make it a relay where they dress and undress and then the next one does the same. Prize to the team finishing everyone first.
A fun outdoor game for a toddler would be the dress up relay race. Kids of all ages will love this game. They object of this game is to put on all the correct clothing and accessories in the right position. (Ex. Hats on head, shoes on feet, pants on legs, shirts on body, ECT.) You must pass the finish line with all the items completely on you or you will be disqualified. If you end up dropping an item, go back to the item, pick it up, and then keep going! For kids that are 3 and under can have assistance of an adult to help them complete the relay.
Here's a good outdoor game for the fall:
Take this fun game outside for parties or camping trips by making one from a tarp. This is a page about homemade outdoor twister game.
