These are super fun and creative ways to get your kids out the door and out of your hair for more than three minutes. Whoops, I mean, fun ways to keep them entertained!
Why consider buying these outdoor activities
Listen, Summer is so close I can almost taste the salt in the air. Every year since having kids, we have found ourselves at the beach more and more. Days that we aren’t at the beach, we find ourselves lost for time as we play for hours and hours outdoors.
We love it. Whether with friends or family, outdoor time is the best. The girls love playing, I love gardening, and Andrew…well, he does something. (not always sure what he’s doing).
As the girls get bigger though, I’ve come to the realization that chalk and bubbles aren’t going to work as entertainment outdoors for much longer.
We also, for the first time, have a decent yard where grass is actually growing. Because of that, we’ve been looking for some fun outdoor activities that we can entertain our guests with.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve found a lot of really cool outdoor activities that I wanted to share with each of you.
Why you need these outdoor activities for tweens and teens
We all know that the closer in age our kids get to moving out of the house, the more they don’t want want anything to do with us. You are desperately trying to keep them at your own house for as often as possible. However, all they want to do is get as far away from you as possible and hang out at someone else’s house.
There’s hope for you yet!
With these outdoor activities you didn’t know you could buy, there’s a chance that you could turn your house into the fun and exciting place that all the kids want to hang out (I know this may be the exact opposite of what some of you want, and that’s okay too.)
Kids, even at this crazy stage of wanting nothing to do with their parents, love to have fun. And they love to do silly things. Bump and Bounce Body Balls or Inflatable Giant Twister are definitely things that will keep the kids around for longer.
And who knows, it may even be a way for you to bond together!
Endless outdoor fun for all ages!
It doesn’t matter if you have tweens or teens, toddlers, or are single with no kids yet, these 30+ outdoor activities you didn’t know you could buy are going to be a hit no matter if it’s a family activity, something for your older kids to do alone, or an adult only outdoor party!
