It’s summer! Which, if you’re lucky, means you get to spend all day outside with the kids having fun and taking a break from the day-to-day routine of school, work and schedules! If you’re going to spend all day outside you’re going to want to ensure fun for everyone. We’ve got some ideas for backyard fun that will keep the kids entertained all week! So set up a teepee for breaks and naps, and reach deep inside for the creativity that lies inside all of us. Some may require a little set-up but don’t be intimidated, most have just a few supplies and steps, but equal hours of fun. It will be worth it.
