When it comes to having some fun with your family and friends, your own backyard become the center of activities. It is often said that your backyard is your paradise and the saying is somewhat true as this is the place in which you can relax and feel like you’ve been somewhere, and also offers all the comforts of your home.

In hectic speed at which we lead our lives these days, we often forget to rejuvenate our minds and bodies. A backyard is ideal for this as it allows us to both relax and have fun, and besides, it will allow us to spend some quality time with the kids as well (and they also deserve our utmost attention).

Here are some ideas on how to turn your backyard into a fun, tranquil, family friendly place:


When it is about having fun with your kids there is nothing better than gardening. I know this statement might seem strange as kids these days seem to run from anything that even suggests work.

But, as kids love to play in mud (or rather getting dirty seems like they are doing something naughty) gardening is not only fun for them, but will also teach the kids some responsibility and the importance of watering plants or planting the trees.

You can even grow your own vegetable garden and have your quite time alone, and occasionally ask your kids to help you with that. Besides, kids love watching the plants grow and off course to pluck the ripest fruits off the plants and eat them.

Take a Dip in the Pool

If you have a pool in your backyard it can certainly feel like haven, especially in those hot days that feel like you can’t bread.

Soaking in the sun by the poolside and then splashing water at your family in the pool is always fun for both the adults and the kids. Besides, taking a dip in the pool in the hot summer days is always refreshing. You can even play some pool games if you want, just unleash the child inside you.

As an added benefit, the poolside is always an ideal venue to throw a themed party around. I’m sure all your friends and family would love a chance to have a backyard BBQ in the pool.

However, when it comes to backyard pools don’t forget to follow Australian regulations and secure your pool with a fence as this will keep your kids away from the water when you are not around and keep them safe.


If you love camping, you can simply turn your backyard into a campsite, pitch a tent and set a bonfire and get ready to enjoy some roasted marshmallows with your family and friends. This is super fun especially for the kids as they love the thrill of camping outside.

Outdoor Games

In today’s high tech age kids mostly rely on gadgets like iPads and laptops when to entertain them. This simply makes them couch potatoes. However, you can change all that if you have a backyard where you can enjoy some outdoor activities with your kids. This will be rejuvenating for all. Playing a game of Frisbee under the sun or a good game of badminton or maybe even backyard bowling, not to mention games that can be played in the pool – it can all be great fun and add to family bonding.

To spent some quality time with your family and friends all you have to be is a little creative and invent ways to have fun and excitement back in life. In order to make your kid happy it is crucial that you return to your old days as a kid and recreate the same magic. Just be a little creative and you can have plenty of fun in your own backyard without spending a lot of money and time.
