Sun's Out Fun's Out!
1. Take a Dip in the Pool
Cool off with a dip in the pool! Swimming is a fun recreational activity for all ages, plus it gives the kids (and you) some time away from the screen. You can install a cost-effective above-ground pool or even set up kiddie pool for the little ones! What are you waiting for? Grab your bathing suit, sunscreen, and your favourite pool float! Speaking of pool floats…
2. Grab a Fun Floatie
You might want to sit back and soak up the sun, but the kids want to have some fun! Grab some pool noodles, water-friendly toys, and more to keep them occupied so you can relax on a pool lounger and work on your tan.
3. Bring the Park Home with a Playset
Turn your backyard into a playground! Playsets are so much more than the basic swing set of yesterday, and now come with loads of features including multiple slides, monkey bars, ladders, and lots of swing options for kids of every age. The possibilities are endless, and kids are guaranteed hours of playtime fun!
4. Get a Jump on the Fun with a Trampoline
Trampolines are a great way to get out all your energy and have fun at the same time! No matter the size of your backyard, there is a trampoline that is a perfect fit. Always be sure to take the necessary safety precautions, including installing an enclosure around the mat. You can also look for mat with anti-slip material and a foam protection pad to place around the edges.
5. All is Fair in Love & Lawn Games
Get into the competitive spirit with lawn games! A badminton set is the perfect way to start some friendly competition, plus it can double as a volleyball set. Pick up some other lawn games like disc drones or a pop-up soccer net to maximize your backyard fun!
6. Head to the Water
Note: Always wear a life jacket when operating paddle boats.
7. Power Nap in a Hammock
After all this fun in the sun, it’s time for you to get some much-needed rest and hammocks are the way to go! Did you know you can get a hammock big enough for two people? We’ve dubbed it the #glammock – a hammock that rises above the rest and offers ample shade and comfort!
8. Cozy Up by the Fire Pit
Now that you’re rested up, grab the marshmallows because there’s nothing like a campfire in the comfort of your own backyard! A fire pit is the best place to tell spooky stories, play games, or listen to some tunes under the moonlight. You can even get a multi-functional fire pit that can flip into a table!
