A house is not just a place to live. It is a place everything should start. It should be home especially with your kids. For that matter, it should be a place that they can enjoy and discover themselves. It can be done with every room and space you have.
Having a backyard would definitely be a big plus for all of you. There are a lot of things you can do with it. It could be something they could hang around with their friends or something a whole family can gather in. It could also be both. Here are some you can do:
A garden is one of the staples a backyard could have. If you have a green thumb, it could be a good hobby, and you can do it with your kids. Having a garden will also make it a good place to be gathered around for picnics and barbecues. It will be relaxing and also a good conversation starter.
Having a playhouse will surely make good memories for your kids. It could be something small and simple where they can put some of their stuff in. But a playhouse can also be multipurpose. If it is big enough, you can put some other rooms in it like an office. With that, you can also have your own space while looking out for the kids. You can also have a space with the adults while the kids have their own to do other things.
3. Play Space
While not a house, it also has a lot of possibilities. You can have your own make-shift playground with slides and swings. You can also have a sandbox for them to play. During summer, instead of going to pools or beaches, you can make them play around the backyard with inflated pools and slip and slides. It could also be a simple sprinklers. If you have a pet, it will also be a nice place for them to play around it with a catch or running around. You can also do some simple sports on it. The possibilities are endless with this one.
Aside from a garden, a patio is also a staple. It is where you can rest, eat meals, or just spend time with your friends and family. You can do some activities there or just catch up and swap stories with food and drinks. With kids, it can be the place where they can eat or do some activities such as crafting and play board games. It can also be a place they can take breaks from playing.
5. Art Corner
You can certainly do art anywhere. But the thing with kids is that they love mess and being messy will surely be fun. Why not have a corner in your backyard where you can do just that? You can do some painting and will not worry about the splashes of it. You can also install a chalkboard where they can draw some stuff. Then have some faucet nearby, so they can clean up after.
