Looking for creative ways to inspire your kids to be more active? You may be surprised at how easy it is to turn your yard into a fun-filled space for active entertainment. Follow these tips to upgrade your backyard into your kids’ own private paradise.
1. Buy a Sunken Trampoline
Backyard trampolines have come a long way in recent years – instead of the traditional freestanding trampoline, consider installing a sunken trampoline in your yard. Sunken trampolines are made level with the existing grade of your yard. They’re much easier for adults and kids alike to use since it doesn’t require a climb to get in or out, and they tend to be safer because there’s no distance from the trampoline to the ground. Be sure to have extra trampoline springs on hand so that in case one breaks, the fun doesn’t have to stop!
2. Add a Swimming Pool
Adults and kids alike can’t resist the allure of a backyard swimming pool. You already know that owning a pool is a major investment, but you might be pleasantly surprised at how cost-effective it’s become to install an above-ground pool. This is a project that can be done in a weekend, and teardown is just as easy.
3. Install a Batting Cage
If anyone in the family loves baseball, a backyard batting cage can be a true luxury. There are plenty of batting cage kits that can easily be assembled in your backyard. These kits include all of the structural members you’ll need for the cage, as well as the appropriate netting. As an added bonus, a batting cage can double as a practice golfing range. Simply swap out the baseball netting with a golf net and you’ll be able to practice your drives in your backyard.
Activity is essential for healthy kids. Follow these tips and you’ll never have trouble encouraging your kids to head outside for some exercise and activity.
