Plan Picnic Activities

If you live in a house, why don’t you plan a nice picnic and prepare sandwiches, fruit, and fries? Put everything in a basket and set up your lawn or patio table.

You and your family will still get some fresh air while connecting with nature at home. It’s a win-win.

A Four-Square Tournament

These outdoor activities are perfect for those who have children. You need four players and a big rubber ball. What you need to do is draw a 12 x 12-foot square on your driveway and divide it into four squares—A, B, C, and D.

Each player steps on a square, and player A starts bouncing the ball in their square. Then, they need to bat it with open hands into another square. That player must hit the ball into another square. When one player misses, or the ball goes out of their square, they move to D, the players behind them advance, and everything starts again. It’s a great game, trust us.

A Garden Labyrinth

If you have a large backyard, you can outline a path with stones or unmowed grass. Look for outline examples online and follow the labyrinth. This is perfect for small children too!

A Treasure Hunt

Kids will love this! Hide little dime-store jewels and other treasures in the garden and draw a map with directions. You can even make it look authentic by letting coffee soak into the map and rip it around the edges.

A smart idea is to hide the map in the house and let your children find it while making the bed or organizing their toys. It’s definitely one of the best weekend activities.
