With the weather warming and schools still closed in many areas, you may be looking for some new backyard activities your kids can enjoy. Our friends at HGTV shared these ideas.
Your kids can still enjoy the fun of camping, but safely in your own backyard. Set up a tent and bring all the usual camp side fun, like binoculars, musical instruments and, of course, all the ingredients for s’mores.
If you have a plastic pool or sandbox your kids no longer use, help them turn it into a fruit or veggie garden that they can water daily and pick anything that’s ready to eat.
Most kids love sidewalk chalk, and you can make their daily drawings both fun and educational by encouraging them to draw a scene from a favorite book or movie.
Everyone loves a good scavenger hunt. You could hold weekly scavenger hunts in your backyard, and even tie the items your kids need to find to some of their lessons from school.
