Have you run out of ideas to keep the family busy, learning and having fun? Quick! Pick an item from the list below before they realize it! It can be difficult to think up new and unique activities to keep them busy while they are out of school. Unfortunately, kids get bored easily so having a unique list of activities is always a big help. So, take a look at these super fun backyard activities and try something new.
Bubble Wrap Twister
A backyard twister game could be just the fun you are looking for. Add a special element by covering the mat in bubble wrap. This makes the game even more fun than ever. Twister is a great game for kids, but have you ever played as an adult? It is the perfect test to see if your yoga classes are actually working. Give it a try!
Are the birds chirping their delightful songs in your backyard? Get out your notepad and colored pencils or crayons and sketch the different kinds of birds. Do this activity with your children to teach them the names of the birds that they have been sharing a backyard with or have them research the type of bird, if older.
Have a BBQ
Do your cooking outside for a change and get some fresh air. Having a BBQ is a nice way to get the whole family outside to play, cook and of course eat! Make a day of it and put out some balloons, party cups and bring out the board games to play at the picnic table.
Bring the backyard fun all the way up to the fence line! You can make every aspect of your backyard a good time. Build a giant chalkboard on the fence (or use your patio concrete), set up some buckets with chalk, and let the imagination run wild.
Set up a S’mores station in your backyard, have a bonfire and make an ooey-gooey mess chomping down on some marshmallow goodness. Make it a special night by putting out tiki lamps, telling ghost stories and sipping on their favorite drink.
Outdoor Movie Theatre
Create a movie theatre outside! What a fun and unique idea that will get the whole family excited. Hopefully, everyone can decide on a movie or you might just have to do the picking yourself. What you are going to need is a projector, a homemade screen (try using PVC pipes), some seating and most importantly, a lot of popcorn!
Tin Can Bowling
Get your bowl on with a homemade bowling game made out of recycled tin cans. A very clever idea on how to reuse your recycling. Paint the tin cans pretty colors, stack them up and start throwing. A great activity to do with the whole family.
There are so many fun ways to pass your time outdoors with the family. If you aren’t feeling creative to think up something yourself, then hopefully you have been inspired by something on our list!
