Summer has finally arrived where I live. The sun is shining, and I’m feeling to pull of the outdoors. We haven’t been camping for a couple of years now, and I think I’m going to have to talk my husband into going for a short trip this year. I don’t need much, I just want to sit outside and throw pine needles into a campfire. Just in case I’m not successful, I’ve gathered up a few ways to have fun in my very own backyard.
Who doesn’t have a few unidentifiable keys laying around? Use them to make this Key Wind Chime from Inner Child Fun, until you remember what they belong to.
This Chalk Rake from Laughing Kids Learn looks like fun.
This Outdoor Seat Cushion from eHow is intended for kids, but I think I could use one myself.
Why is it that things that are bigger than normal, like this Backyard Four in a Row Game from Andrea’s Notebook are so much more fun?
You never know when you’re going to need this Emergency Picnic Kit from Today’s Creative Life, so best to have some at hand.
You need special paper to Turn Digital Photos into Sun Prints from Photojojo but I’ve seen it in local craft stores so I think it’s pretty easy to come by.
These Easy Outdoor Candle Stakes from A Subtle Revelry are one of those things that make you say “Why didn’t I think of that?”
I am a mosquito magnet, so I’m always looking for new ways to make them want to avoid me. Next up: All Natural Mosquito Repellant from TipHero
I love chalkboards, but they’re so messy. I love the idea of this Giant Outdoor Chalkboard from Hey There Home.
If you’re looking for a good excuse to get yourself some pink flamingos, it doesn’t get much better than this Flamingo Ring Toss Yard Game from Sugar and Cloth.
