Children need to play outdoors—it’s part of being a kid. With a bit of planning, you can create a back yard that lets kids do their thing without looking like a poorly-maintained schoolyard. There’s no reason the grownups can’t enjoy a stylish yard that’s kid-friendly too.
A Place for the Kids’ Stuff
For some reason, children love things that go inside other things. They also like things that are exclusively theirs. Channel this into a cleaner yard for mom and dad by providing the little ones a place for their toys and outdoor gear.
You could choose a deck box, a small shed or even a storage lean-to on their playhouse. By giving the little ones their very own storage space, you’ll encourage them to keep all their outside toys in one place—clean, dry and out of sight.
A Large Outdoor Chalk Board
If you’re like many parents, your sidewalks, deck or patio may be sporting a rainbow of chalk art much of the time. You can purchase a chalkboard, or make your own in an afternoon. Mount it on the fence, the side of the garage, or wherever your kids like to play outside. They’ll appreciate the novelty almost as much as you’ll appreciate not getting chalk on your clothes.
