A few ideas to help keep active outside
Having a large family of young children means the household will always be somewhat noisy. So many people eating at tables and in bedrooms, typing on computers and laptops and going in and out of the house. You need something to keep them occupied and fighting off the boredom by themselves. When kids are bored they get restless, they get agitated. A bunch of frustrated children in confined quarters is never a good thing. Either they’ll end up annoying you, looking for something to do or they’ll somehow end up arguing with each other. A home that doesn’t support an active lifestyle is bound to have these kinds of issues. It’s only natural for growing kids to want to expand their energy no matter if it’s hot or cold, wet or dry outside. The garden comes to the rescue many times, but the fall seasons can make it less than desirable. But here’s how you can keep it active.
All-weather get together
The main goal of a garden that will keep the kids occupied, is flexibility. No matter what the season is your garden should still have something that makes it fun. When it’s hot, late nights out in the garden will become more and more frequent. And, when it’s the fall camping outside with a fire is going to be just as fun for the kids. So, buy an all-weather garden tent that is for families. Designed to be strong and spacious, these kinds of tents vary in their shapes. Some offer more room than others, so it depends on what you require for the size of your family. When the summer comes around they can use the tent as an obstacle to hide in while playing with water guns. Yet when the winter comes, they can use it as cover for a snowball fight.
Less work more play
You have enough on your plate you don’t need more garden chores to be added onto your schedule. Mowing the lawn and keeping it in good condition so the kids can play their sports on it takes a consistent effort. Is the pay off really worth it in the end? Instead you can buy LazyLawn which is an artificial lawn that can be easily fitted to your garden. It’s going to be available to use and play on all year round no matter what season, weather or temperature it is. The highly trained installers know how to fit both a commercial or domestic applications so they already have plenty of experience underneath their belt.
A classic game played indoors, now can be made bigger and played outdoors. Giant Jenga blocks can be placed on top of each other and then, let the games begin. The kids can play this outdoors as the pieces are heavy enough to not be blown around by a gentle wind. It’s all about patience and a steady hand in this game.
Getting the kids active is no problem. But, getting them active day after day becomes a challenge. They will get bored before you do so try to make your garden fun all year round. Whether it’s a tent or artificial grass so they can play their sports, change your garden to fit all the seasons.
