Summer is the perfect time for kids to get outside and explore the great outdoors. From building a backyard obstacle course to touring a factory, the possibilities for outdoor adventures are endless. Here are a few ideas to get your kids excited about exploring the world outside their front door.


If you're looking for an activity that will challenge your child's physical skills, consider building a backyard obstacle course. Use items like hula hoops, cones, and balance beams to create a fun and challenging course for your child to navigate.


Camping in the yard is a great way to introduce your child to the joys of camping without having to leave your backyard. Set up a tent, build a fire, and roast marshmallows for an unforgettable camping experience.


Plan a bike parade with your child and their friends. Decorate their bikes with streamers, flags, and balloons, and ride through the neighborhood in a colorful parade.

Encourage your child's love for animals by making a bird feeder together. Use materials like pine cones, peanut butter, and birdseed to create a feeder that will attract birds to your backyard.


DIY chalk bombs are a fun and messy way to add some color to your backyard. Fill water balloons with different colors of chalk dust, and let your child throw them around the yard for a colorful explosion.


If your child loves to fish, take them to a nearby lake or river to try their luck at catching some fish.


Playing games outside is a great way to keep your child active and engaged. Consider games like tag, hopscotch, or hide and seek.


Many communities offer park activities during the summer months. Check with your local parks department to see if they offer any programs your child might enjoy.

Decorating rocks is a fun and creative activity that can be done outside. Use paints and markers to create designs and patterns on rocks, then use them to decorate your yard or garden.

Arrange a scavenger hunt for your child and their friends. Create a list of items they need to find, and send them on a hunt through the neighborhood or local park.


Building a backyard bonfire is a fun and exciting way to spend an evening with your family. Roast hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire, and enjoy the warmth and light of the flames.


Watching movies outdoors is a great way to enjoy a warm summer evening. Set up a projector and screen in your backyard, and snuggle up with blankets and pillows to watch a family-friendly movie.
