If you’ve got kids home for the summer, I’m sure you’re looking for ways to keep them entertained. Honestly, when my kids were younger, it was so much easier to keep them entertained because they would go outside and play with the neighborhood kids. Now that they are older, they prefer to play on their electronics, but it’s not something I want to spend the entire day on. So, I’ve rounded up a few DIY Backyard Games and Activities for some summer outdoor family fun!

  1. These are so wonderful and creative activities, though tough to bring today’s kids hooked on electronic devices to get involved in these manual activities.

  2. some fab ideas here – my kids are older too so it’s sometimes hard to get them off the electronics! I really love those cornboards 😀
