Backyard activities for kids don’t have be boring! With these fun ideas your kids can relax, explore, and use their imagination in the great outdoors!
Summertime is all about playing outside and creating life long memories!
Don’t have a tree big enough for a treehouse? How about a play tent? Want to enjoy a movie under the stars? Then a movie theatre in your backyard is just want you are looking for!
One fun way to cool off in the Summer is by making your own sponge water bombs! Putting these water bombs together are not only easy, they are inexpensive too. Which is always a definite win-win!
Other ways you can have fun playing outside are by making water balloons, flying kites, blowing bubbles, creating games with pool noodles, making your own slip and slide, as well as taking small road trips to local beaches or local parks.
Fun Summertime backyard activities doesn’t just have to be during the daytime! How about games and activities to do at night? Besides watching movies, how about trying to catch lighting bugs in jars? Or you could play glow-in-the-dark games like this one made by Starlux.
Another great Summertime activity that doesn’t require you leaving your backyard is to go camping! My husband and kids have actually started doing this and they love it. Granted, it’s not exactly “true” camping, however, they pop a tent in the backyard near the fire pit, take all of the necessities they need like camping bags, food, and games and have fun.
And if Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate that weekend, they are just right outside the house and can come inside.
