Backyard + summer + kids = lots of fun. Just because your backyard doesn’t have a swimming pool doesn’t mean your kids can’t spent hours out there having fun. The way to make that happen is to create some fun zones where they can play all kinds of games. Consider incorporating one (or all!) of these fun zone ideas for your backyard.
Pitch a Tent
Don’t keep your camping tent tucked away in storage all summer. Set it up in the backyard. It can become a permanent fun house for your kids. It’s also a nice cover when it rains or is too sunny.
Make a Gravel Pit
A sandbox is always fun but also always messy. It’s hard to avoid tracking that sand back in the house. You could replace the sand with pea gravel. Your kids will have the same level of fun digging and scooping in the gravel. If you don’t want to fill up a sandbox, then you could arrange railroad ties into a square or triangle and fill the inside with the gravel.
Build a Dirt Mound
Dirt is very easy to come by. Instead of having your kids dig up your backyard why not dump a pile of topsoil in a corner and let them have at it. You can also put in PVC piping for tunnels. Lots of fun can be had in this kind of dirt!
Set Up a Stage
If your kids are all about creating a show, then give them a state space. This can be something as simple as hanging curtains on a clothesline or as elaborate as using old pallets to create a stage. Of course, with a stage will come a show so be prepared to be entertained.
Plant a Garden
Your kids might appreciate growing their own salad for dinner. They won’t need a large garden patch to accomplish that goal. If you don’t want them digging up the lawn, then they can plant their vegetables in containers and tend to them throughout the summer.
Before you set up any of these fun zones, you may want to get rid of some of the old playground equipment that has seen better days. That’s where a call to Junk King Atlanta can be a big help.
