If you have a toddler or even younger children then you will know what an incredible sight it is to watch them make their way through the world. Every time they pick up something they learn something new, and it is your job to make sure that they have as much exposure as possible. If you struggle to get out of the house or if you find it hard to find activities for them to do then it is more than possible for you to make something in your own garden.
Creating A Backyard Your Kids Will Enjoy
If you want to create something special, create a sensory garden. You can choose plants that are very robust and this means that your kids can have a high level of hands-on fun. Herbs smell great and they can be plucked time and time again without damaging the plant. Shrubs are also ideal here, and fast-growing plants are not to be missed. If you do not have a garden then why not consider going for an enclosed deck? This is one of the best ways for you to create something special without having to have a full space, and there are plenty of outdoor planters available for you to choose from as well.
If you have a play kitchen inside then why not take it outside? They’ll love being outside and you can really encourage them to use their cooking station as well. You can even go on to attach a couple of wide sections of wood to a wall and before you know it, you have your own cooking shelves. If you don’t have a play kitchen then take some planks of wood and paint some chalk circles on it and then act like it is a hob. You can then stock up on ingredients and use a couple of the old pots and pans you have lying around to really make it special. The best of it is, this won’t affect the look or value of your home and it can be taken down at any time!
Chalk and Drawing
If you have a deck then this is perfect for you to draw on. Your kids can even turn the fence into a huge work of art. If you want to do this then screw some plywood onto the fence and then cover it with some blackboard paint. This is very easy for you to buy and you can even get some oversized chalk as well. This will encourage your child to use their imagination and it can really help with their fine motor skills. On top of this, it’s a great boost for their confidence, and there is zero wastage. You can even have some of your child’s friends come round as well, and when you do this, you can easily have a playdate or even weekend fun.
So there has never been a better time for you to completely transform your garden into something spectacular and it is very easy for you to turn a boring weekend into a fun and exciting experience. All you have to do is have a little creativity and a child to experience it with.
