Summer vacation is the time for kids to relax and play with friends. But it’s easy for kids to fall into a routine of just staying inside and watching TV or playing video games. It’s important for kids to get outside, move around, and take advantage of the summer weather before winter (and school) comes back. Make sure your kids get some quality outside time (and family time!) with these family-friendly backyard tips to make your backyard and outdoor deck your kids’ number one hang out spot this summer:
- Adding simple outdoor activities like a trampoline or a seesaw can provide hours of fun for kids of all ages! And hammocks are perfect for reading a book or taking a nap.
- While the kids play, a nice lounge area on a deck or patio is a great place for parents to hang out and supervise. Comfortable seating, string lights overhead on a pergola or even a flat screen TV can transform your backyard and make it seem more like an extension of your home rather than a separate space.
- Your deck is a perfect place to have dinner, too. Just fire up the grill and have your meal outside! Having a maintenance free deck means you don’t have to worry about too much wear and tear on your deck.
- Start a family tradition by setting up a movie screen and have a family movie night under the stars! Grab a family-favorite movie and set up a projector and a screen, and you’re all set.
