As much as running and plying around is interesting, sometimes all you need is to sit down to relax. This calls for having a sitting place in the backyard. Hanging chairs can be a good idea so that you can relax and enjoy some relaxed time together as a family.

For kids, the best version of a hanging chair would be a swing. You can use an old chair and strong ropes or a chain to come up with one. Ensure they are well secured for safety. In place of the chair you can use old tires secured with chains too and hang on a tree.

Don’t think I have forgotten the number one fan for kids, a tree house! It is a must have in every backyard, children need such to play together, have meetings, host their friends and have fun the whole day. If you already have one, you can do a makeover on it and if you don’t, start building it with your kid.
[b]Make a DIY water sprinkler[/b]
Make holes in a plastic bottle and fix it at the end of a water pipe, easy! Children love water and with such they might never want to live the backyard. In a way, this will also help to irrigate the grass, flowers and other plants you might be having in your home.
[b]Make water balloons[/b]
Fill colored balloons with water and hang them somewhere in the backyard. As colorful as they are, they can be a good idea to teach your children colors while having fun at the same time.
