4 Fun Family Things to Do in Your Own Backyard

Welcome Spring! Say hello to greenery, gorgeous weather, and longer days!

Spending Spring Break at home this year? Get the whole family outside to transform your backyard into a play zone with these DIY projects that’ll get your kiddos off the couch and keep them active this Spring Break.

Build a Fairy Garden

If fairies preferred a season, it would definitely be spring! Become inspired by the blooming landscape to create your own Fairy Garden. There are all sorts of aesthetic options and decorative styles, so this project allows for maximum imagination! To get the gears going, check out this version of a Fairy House (aka Toad Abode!).

Engineer a Backyard Minigolf Course

Step right up and show off your mini-golf skills in the comfort of your own yard! This step-by-step guide outlines ways to make obstacles out of everyday items. Pick your favorite styles for hole-in-one fun with just the family, or invite the neighborhood for a mini-golf party!

Create Wooden Toy Car Ramps

These DIY ramps can turn anything into a super speedway! Use them outside to build ramps across dangerous terrain made from things found in the backyard, or bring them inside during bad weather to fulfill that need for speed wherever you are.

Prepare for an Outdoor Movie Night

Chances are the kiddie pool is already drained and stored away, but dust it off and use it all-year-round as cozy seats for an outdoor movie night! Just inflate to your liking, add your favorite pillows and blankets, and use a projector to watch a family-favorite under the stars!

Of course, if you run out of backyard fun, you can always bring the family to Splashway Campground’s Spring Break, happening March 6 – March 22! Parents can kick back and relax on the deck of the Hideaway while kids are busy playing putt-putt, laser tag, and more! Book your idyllic family getaway today!
