It’s officially Summertime here in Utah, school is out, and kids are restless! There are always things to do, but why not keep it cheap, simple, and in your own backyard! Here are 5 summertime backyard activities for you and your kids!
#1- Movie Night! This is such a great way to get everyone together for a good time! If you don’t already own a projector, there are places to rent them for a good price! Invite the neighbors, have everyone bring something yummy, and set up your own home theatre! Make sure to bring the bug spray and some blankets!
#2- Lawn Games! With a little bit of spray paint you can turn your lawn into a game board! Twister, Tic-Tac-Toe, Checkers, or any other game you can create! Make your playground a board game playground, fun for the whole family!
#3- Chalk Art! Let your kids turn your driveway and sidewalk into a masterpiece! Always a good time!
#4- BBQ! A Classic! It seems like a no-brainer, but a backyard BBQ can be a great way to have fun! Make it a potluck and invite the neighbors and friends!
#5- Camping! Who needs to leave home to go camping? Just set up in your own backyard! You don’t have to leave home for a good time in your tent! Plus, you have everything you need if you forget anything (like I ALWAYS do!)!
