You can do it all without breaking the bank. With just a little effort, you can make your outdoor space the perfect haven for your kids this summer.

Creating a designated play area is an excellent way to encourage your kids to enjoy spending more time outside. Invest in durable play equipment such as slides, swings, climbing frames or a sandbox! By doing so it will ensure that the kids have a safe place to play and that they always have something to do. Moreover, it is an opportunity to create a customized area that reflects the likes and interests of your children. This way, they will feel a sense of ownership and pride in the area and be more inclined to use it.

Veggie patch is an excellent way to teach kids about the wonders of nature. Not only will they learn about the importance of being patient and nurturing, but they will also get to taste the fruits of their efforts at harvest time. Choose easy-to-grow crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and beans and involve your children in growing and harvesting them. The experience will help them to understand how food is produced and can encourage them to eat more vegetables.

To spice things up, be creative and grow the veggies in a planter box for elevated and easy access, excitement and to keep safe from the kiddos feet traffic. Oh and they can always express their creativity by decorating the planter boxes as well. Fun for sure! 

While the kids are going to be spending a lot of time of outside, it's essential to provide plenty of shade in your backyard. Planting trees around your lawn is an excellent way to ensure that there's natural shade. For time and convenience, umbrellas and hammocks are perfect for cooling down while getting their much-need rest from the summer activities. 

Also dont forget to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Set up a drink station and have plenty of water available to keep them well hydrated.

Include picnic tables or benches for comfort. Installing a fire pit is also a great idea. It's a perfect place to sit and enjoy time with family and friends while creating memories that will last forever.
