Today I browsed Pinterest to find some fun outdoor summer activities for the kids! These are out-of-the-box ideas that you can make at home :)
Use zip ties to put Christmas tree lights on the trampoline! This would make some fun summer nights for the kids, in fact, you might not be able to get them off for bed time! You could also fill it with comfy pillows and blankets to look at the stars. (Unknown user uploaded on Pinterest)
How fun!! Get an old rain gutter, put caps on the end and stick a hose in for boats to float in! Make sure that the gutter doesn't have any sharp sides before you do this though. (Unknown user uploaded on Pinterest)
Build this wood covered playhouse for kids! One wall has a chalkboard, a PVC pipe play wall, and a nice big sand box on the bottom. Perfect to get shade on those little ones! This was uploaded to Pinterest with no instructions, unfortunately!
