Summer is the best time for kids to try out new backyard activities and have some fun, which is why we are bringing you these backyard ideas for kids. There are so many simple pastimes to enjoy like foraging for flowers, twigs and leaves on their very own backyard nature trail, or making a seed bomb to throw into the borders and wait for the flowers to spring up like magic. 

Alternatively there are projects for kids to try out like building a bee or bug hotel, as well as old favorites like camping out in the backyard and encouraging them to tend their own vegetable patch. Backyard ideas of this kind don’t have to involve expensive equipment and the latest toys for kids to have a good time outdoors.
