Entertaining The Family Outdoors

May 10, 2020


Erin Schrader

As the weather is finally starting to turn here in Northern Indiana, we’re finding ourselves outdoors more and more. Whether it’s a quick walk with the pups or making plans to spend the whole day outside, a little bit of sunshine and fresh air can do wonders! We know that keeping the whole family entertained might be easier said than done, so today we’re sharing a few of our favorite outdoor activities to keep everyone happy from sunrise to sunset!

  • Spikeball: From the backyard to the beach, Spikeball has been gaining popularity all over collage campuses, tailgate fields, and at home for the past several years! It’s so much fun [and will have you working up a sweat!].
  • Yardzee Yard Dice: Erin just ordered this giant set of yard dice – who’s going to be the first one to tell Yahtzee [or should I say, Yardzee]?
  • Tiki Toss: Next thing you know, you’ll realize you’ve been trying to get a simple ring on a hook for thirty solid minutes… this game is highly addictive!
  • Bags or Cornhole [whatever you prefer]: What do you call it where you’re from? Whatever you call it, I call it a fan-fave!
  • Fire Pit: Summertime means campfire season [aka s’mores season]. And this firepit is propane driven, so with a quick flip of the switch, you’re s’mores ready!
  • Ladder Toss: Lightweight and easy to assemble, ladder toss is fun for all ages!
  • Bubble Wand: Hannah’s family has been spending a ton of time outdoors [basketball, water balloon fights, walks, and more!], and this bubble wand has been a HUGE hit with her two kids!
  • Tie Dye Kit: Tie dye is majorly trending this season, and making your own tie dye items is always a hit! No two outcomes are the same!

I found myself with a quiet house this morning for the first time in over a week. I love nothing more than having everyone home together, but my soul needs time alone too. As soon as everyone was off to school, the silence was quickly filled with the rumblings of my not-yet-fed stomach which got […]
