If you often entertain or have children of your own, an outside child-friendly zone would be the best DIY outdoor project for you. It is also a great opportunity to allow the kids to get involved. You can create an indoor fun zone by installing play sets or an activity table, or an outside zone to entertain. Here are some great outdoor ideas for your next outdoor project.
A Playhouse: Kids always love being in their own space and having their own fun zone to play in. A playhouse is a great DIY outdoor project idea because it is easy to put together and is very inexpensive. You can purchase materials at a hardware store and you’ll only need some tools to complete this project. To complete this project you will need: A large table that is about one foot by three feet; a large set of shelves to put all of the small toys on (do not use plastic storage bins); large doors for the playhouse; a door knob; a large window; and a wall on the outside of the play area. All the materials you’ll need can be found in a hardware store.
An Activity Table: Children love playing on these tables and it’s a great way to introduce them to outdoor adventures. They have their own area to work on their coloring, playing board games or learn about new skills with their friends. It’s a great opportunity for the kids to bond and be creative. This project requires a sturdy table top made of either metal or wood, a few wooden cubes or other items to give it a nice look, a variety of different color blocks and a few fun paint colors that the kids can add to make their own masterpiece.
A Small Outdoor Fun Zone: This project involves placing a small tent or gazebo in the backyard. Then you need to set up a simple set of benches in front of it. This can be an outdoor table or a table just to hold the small tent. To get started you’ll need: An empty pool table; a couple of chairs; a few plastic picnic tables; and a picnic blanket. All of the materials can be found at your local hardware store. Once you get your supplies together you can find a variety of colors of plastic chairs, tables and picnic blankets online.
A Gazebo: For this DIY outdoor fun zone you’ll need: A hammock; a plastic folding umbrella; a plastic table and chairs; a table runner; and chairs with backrests for the hammock; and an umbrella pole; and a large plastic box or basket to hold drinks and snacks. To complete this project you’ll need to purchase or make several small hammocks and cover them with a large tarp or vinyl or plastic sheet. You will need an umbrella pole for the gazebo so the canopy doesn’t blow away in the wind. After you put all of the pieces together, you can enjoy a warm summer evening enjoying the sunshine or enjoy the breeze. It’s a great project to do with your kids or guests.
An Outdoor Fun Zone: You can start by creating an indoor zone or an outdoor fun zone by using your creativity. You can create an outdoor area that you can use to entertain in the summer or as a relaxing retreat for those who spend time in the winter months. Create an outside area that allows your visitors to sit outside to enjoy a comfortable setting to play board games and work on some outdoor hobbies. To make this project you need to purchase materials for an outdoor lounge area. You can either purchase pre-made outdoor chairs and table supplies or make one on your own.
A Backyard Playground: This project can be a fun zone for the whole family. It is a great place to get exercise and meet friends for games and activities. In this project you will need to gather materials for: an empty play area; playground equipment such as swings and slides; small tools and materials such as nails, string, sand and cement; an empty playground table; some colorful rope and string to create colorful obstacle courses; and playground toys. You’ll also need a couple of picnic tables for your guests to sit on or make one from the plastic sheet. and an umbrella pole to shade your kids from the sun. Make sure you have enough room to walk, run and play. After you’ve gathered the materials it can be a great project to do with your kids and the other guests at your party.
If you’ve been thinking about creating an outdoor area you’ve already got all of the materials for the outdoor fun zone in one place. If you are unsure about what to do with the space you can always hire a professional. They will know what you need for your outdoor fun zone.
