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 had a pile of scrap wood sitting around that my kids were always wanting to play with, so I decided to add a little paint and make them into an Outdoor Wooden Blocks set. They are consistently played with, and they literally cost just a few dollars to make!
