Before you know it, spring will be here. You could already be planning the annuals you’ll be planting in your garden or even that first backyard picnic. If you have children, it is also a wonderful time to think about simple jobs that will keep them entertained and enjoying the outside too. An outdoor chalkboard, a climbing wall and more are sure to make your backyard the envy of the neighborhood kids.

Placing a chalkboard panel in your existing fence is a quick DIY job that children of all ages will adore. The bonus is that you can use the chalkboard too. Think easy party bannerads.

If you’ve got built-in seats, try adding cushions in bold colors. Your children will spend additional time in the yard if they are comfy, and choosing an outdoors-friendly cloth like Sunbrella will ensure that the cushions will last for many years to come.

Don’t let lack of distance interfere with your backyard fun. If you’ve got a bigger property, look up. Including a basic canopy with vivid tablecloths or sheets may arouse your children’s imaginations. I can already hear the”property ahoy!” calls.

If you’ve got a powerful enough tree, put in a swing. Swing supplies can be purchased from any local hardware store, and adding one to your own backyard is a fun project you can do with your children.

A rock climbing wall is not the simplest job, however, the idea here would be to consider adding something that your children can climb on. If your budget won’t allow a full-blown wall, maybe it’s possible to add a few large boulders.

Forts and slides are always backyard favorites. If you are feeling ambitious, a setup like this may take a very long weekend to complete, however, the memories made for your children will be together for years to come.

Never underestimate the ability of a pleasant, lush yard. If you use it for a household soccer game, a run through the sprinklers or even a quick game of catch, there is no replacement for good old-fashioned grass. Start preparing your yard now for the fun spring ahead by stocking up on a fantastic time-released fertilizer and taking notice of some unsightly stains that may need seed.
