Four Fun Backyard Activities

Spring is a great time to make use of your backyard. Whether it’s a party with friends and family, or a family activity, take advantage of your backyard when it’s nice out. Here are some fun things you can do!

Feed the Birds

If you enjoy birdwatching, set up a feeder to watch them closer. Building a birdfeeder is easy and very inexpensive. If you enjoy crafting you probably have everything you need already. This can also be a fun activity to do with children. Once you set up the birdfeeder, just wait and see all of the birds come and enjoy the treats you set out. You’ll be able to take great pictures, or just watch them without needing binoculars.

Big Chalkboard

Having a chalkboard in the backyard will allow your creativity to really show. You can either buy a chalkboard or build one. It’s a great thing to have if you want to keep score, play games, or just keep your children busy when you’re doing some yard work. If you’re having a get together, you can decorate the chalkboard with a welcome message, or maybe the menu for your barbeque. Playing with chalk is always fun for children, and adults who enjoy drawing pictures on a beautiful day.   

Lawn Games

Spring is a great time for outdoor games. There are plenty of inexpensive lawn game sets you could buy, or you can make your own games. From croquet to badminton, or horseshoes and cornhole, games will make your party, or weekend, a lot more fun. Some very popular DIY items are backyard blocks. You can use them to build, or play Jenga. They will definitely add to the excitement.

Plant a Garden

Flowers will make your backyard look great. You can plant them along your home, or designate a spot in the backyard. If you want to get a bit more creative, plant them on your fence! Use tin cans as pots, and attach them to your fence in the backyard to create a cool scene. Use the vertical space to your advantage and fill your fence with your favorite flowers.
