Summer is right around the corner and will be here before you know it. One of our favorite things about summer is spending time outdoors with friends and neighbors! To turn up the heat on your summer fun, we put together a list of fun backyard essentials.
Game On: Who doesn’t love a little friendly competition? Nothing says summer like lawn games! Cornhole is a crowd favorite and perfect for all ages. Another classic game to get the competition going is Jumbo Jenga. You can purchase the human-size game or make your own with scrap wood. Other great options include bocce, croquet, ladder-toss and so much more!
Cool Off: When the temperatures get hot, it can be difficult to enjoy time outdoors. How do you keep your guests cool? Stock up on water balloons, sprinklers, a Slip ’n Slide and water soakers! A water fight is a fun way to entertain groups of all ages and to cool off when it’s hot outside. If you have four-legged friends that want to join in the fun, set up an inflatable pool for them to enjoy. Fun in the sun for all!
Fire It Up: Summer days and nights aren’t always hot. Keep the fun going when the temperatures are cooler by bringing everyone together around a fire pit. Sweeten the night with s’mores – all you need are graham crackers, marshmallows, chocolate bars and skewers. Fire pits are an innovative way to elevate the appearance of your backyard with a wide variety of styles and sizes available. A fire pit is also a great way to entertain year-round!
No matter the size of your backyard, these ideas will surely be a hit with friends and neighbors. We believe it’s how you live that matters and making lasting memories in your backyard is what summer is all about. Have you tried these any of these ideas or have your own essentials to share?
