Ultra Kid-Friendly Backyard Ideas

The importance of spending time outside can’t be overstated, and this is especially true for children. There are numerous benefits to outdoor play in particular, including improved overall health, better peer-to-peer relationships, appreciation for the environment, aid with brain development, developing a sense of independence, and others. Creating a kid-friendly backyard is a great way to encourage your kids to spend more time outside in the fresh air and sunshine. Here are some ways that you can help create the perfect outdoor environment for your children:

Build a Treehouse or Playhouse

Whether you have building expertise or want to hire a professional, adding a treehouse or playhouse to your backyard is an ideal way to get kids outside and give them joy. After all, the same way that adults like their man caves and she sheds, children enjoy their own spaces as well. A treehouse or playhouse will be the perfect safe space for your kids to indulge their imagination, play games, spend time with friends, and create lasting memories.

Install a Play Structure

Adding one or more play structures in your backyard will allow your kids to swing, climb, slide, and play the day away. Consider choosing a play structure that will grow with your kids so that you can get the utmost value for your investment.

Install a Zip Line

Installing a zip line between two trees in your backyard is the perfect way to infuse a little adventure in your kids’ outdoor playtime.

Add a Sports Court or Field

If your kids like certain sports, you can designate spaces around your backyard for them to engage in these activities. For instance, if your child likes soccer, you can simply add a soccer goal, or if your child likes golf, you can consider an artificial putting green. The sky’s the limit!

Add Shade

Shade structures such as pergolas, screen rooms, and patio covers will allow your little ones to play outdoors while being protected from harsh UV rays and other elements. These structures will be a welcome addition for adults as well!
