Family Fun in Your Backyard

Family Fun in Your Backyard from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

Cheaper than a movie, more endearing than a loud public place, and more personal than anywhere else on earth, your backyard is a great place to invest in family memories. A great way to get the family to spend time together, your backyard should be a place that invites fun, activity, and gathering. Here are some ways to make your backyard a haven.

A Space for Entertaining

A deck is a great place to host outdoor parties. You may want to go all out and hire a landscaping company, design a royal deck, and have awnings and outdoor fire pits installed. Or, you may want to be clever and do it on your own time, with a simple stone tile layout and concrete mix steps. The material for installing it on your own will be available in any area, like Flushing, New York, or Muncie, Indiana, so you can decide if you want to pour on your own or hire a company to do it for you.

A Space for the Kids

Nothing says backyard fun for kids like a place all their own. A fantastic family project might be to build a treehouse. The measuring, sawing, building, and painting of a treehouse can be a great way to get everyone together. Another great option for family fun is to install a swimming pool, which will give your kids hours of activity, and also make them the coolest kids on the block. Last but not least, a trampoline is a never-ending source of fun that everyone can get involved in, especially with extra features like a trampoline basketball hoop attachment.

A Space for Relaxation

Finally, your backyard should be a place to relax. Instead of bare grass and nowhere to sit, your backyard should be a place for meditation, gathering, or enjoying an evening read. You should be able to sit in a hammock or bench-swing and enjoy the fireflies. It should be beautiful, so string lights and hang paper lanterns. Your backyard is your own private slice of nature, so celebrate it as much as you can.

When you purchased your home, likely one of the things on your list was “a good backyard.” You may have been escaping from an apartment or the smog of the city, and that patch of green that was all your own was important to you. After the move and its remodeling and fresh coats of paint, you all but forgot about the backyard and its potential treasures. But an outdoor life is a healthy life, and as much as you can encourage your family to get outside to play and relax, the better off you’ll be.
