Summer is almost here, and we can't wait. We are definitely on the countdown! One of the best things about our little apartment is that it has a great yard, and so being here through the summer while our house is being built means that we'll still have plenty of room for the kids to run and play. However...there isn't anything out there right now, so I've been on the hunt recently for some really great backyard ideas that I could make for not only our yard now, but also for when we move into our house.
I love that my kids love to be outside, and I want to do everything I can to encourage that. Exploring, creating, playing, running, jumping, climbing---that's what summer is meant to be! I want less time on electronics and more time outside, so providing really fun activities outside is high on my priority list.
As I searched, I gathered some of my favorite backyard ideas for kids, and I wanted to share what I found with you!
DIY BACKYARD IDEAS FOR KIDS
We think of having a fire pit as not optional. It has been the very first thing we’ve done in every house we’ve lived in, and it will be same at our new house too. AND…we are so lucky because the apartment we’re renting has one in the backyard! Wahoo! Summers nights…sitting in front of the fire, roasting marshmallows, laughing with friends and family…perfection.
All of these ideas add up to summer FUN for kids and families!
