1. Outdoor Scavenger Hunt

Not only are scavenger hunts super fun, but they are also a great bonding experience. Start by making a checklist of items you can search for outside, such as ants or a spider web. Include a similar picture or drawing for each item on the checklist so kids can take the lead as they head out on the hunt. When it’s time to take the trip outside, accompany your child and help point them in the right direction for each object.

2. Manufacture of natural frames

Make art with objects found in your own backyard! First, make a frame using popsicle sticks and contact paper. Then have your child search outside to find items that can be glued to the contact paper. The finished product is a colorful collage of flowers, leaves, pebbles and other beautiful materials from the outdoors.

For this craft you need planters, potting soil, a selection of natural objects and any whimsical trinkets you have lying around. Fill a planter with soil and the fun part of assembling your adventure garden begins.

4. Manufacture of outdoor mud Kitchen

Playing in mud is synonymous with childhood, and every mud master needs their own mud kitchen for their messy creations. This charming outdoor mud kitchen features a variety of Mason jars filled with their marked “tops” of dandelions, grass, seedlings and pebbles. A hanging banner with the words “More mud please” printed on it hangs over the Mason jars. Clipboards with a “Blossoms and Blooms” flower card and an illustrated list of “Backyard Ingredients” hang over two work sinks along with a variety of spoons, spatulas and measuring utensils that children can use when preparing their mud and flowers.

5. Outdoors Movie Night

Make a movie night even more fun by turning the backyard into a movie theater. For this outdoor clock party, the filmmaker arranges inflatable pools around the yard for use as seating. Next, they wrap a sheet over each pool before decorating them with cozy blankets and pillows. The end result looks like a luxury outdoor theater that would even make Spielberg jealous.
