Our mild winter has really turned into a beautiful spring. We’ve had warmer days, cooler days, perfect days in between. As we face the reality that home is where we are possibly going to be more than anywhere else this summer, it’s a great time to get creative with our outdoor spaces. Why not make it your favorite place to be?

Backyard Area for the Kids

Of course, you need your own place to relax, but we all know if the kids ain’t happy, you ain’t relaxin’. Pinterest has some really fun ideas that don’t cost a lot, aren’t difficult, and are super cute!

You can pick up pallets at your local warehouses or even the landfill. Then all you need is a few nails and some of your old pots and pans, and the kids are set! This is a really fun and easy project, likely to lead to hours of fun.

Tree Stump Tic Tac Toe:

A stump, a round piece of wood, a chisel, some rocks, and some paint. How’s that for easy? You can paint rocks into bugs, flowers, or whatever your kids are into. Chisel a hashtag in a board, and its game on!

Kiddie Pool Lounging Area:

Kids need their chill time too. So why not create a lounging area? All you need is a kiddy pool, some blankets, and some pillows. Perfect spot for snacks, reading, even some outdoor screen time. They will have their relaxing spot while you are snug in your own.

Once the kids are busy, you’ll be able to sit down in your own quiet spot, if quiet is what you are looking for. What does your own oasis look like?

Maybe a firepit and some Adirondack chairs?

Or how about an oversized swing for you and your honey?

Then again, maybe working is your relaxing. There are so many gardening ideas out there whether you prefer vegetables or flowers, flat or raised.
