Here are a few fun activities to enjoy outdoors on the patio with your kids, before they load up their backpacks and head back to their classrooms.
Host a movie night on your patio with a back-to-school theme. Prepare all your favorite movie snacks: candy, soda, and of course popcorn. Then set up the projector, and make a fun place for the kids to relax and enjoy the show. Choose a movie that will get the kids excited to start the new school year. A couple of our favorites include School of Rock, Matilda, and if you want to make it a marathon, settle in for a few nights and watch allll of the Harry Potter series.
One Last Hurrah
And finally, as the hot summer days draw to an end and kids are getting back into school mode, why not go nuts and have a good old-fashioned water balloon fight in the backyard?! We like these water balloons because they are easy for kids to fill themselves, so you won’t spend the entire afternoon filling and tying water balloons. And if you prefer to keep it calmer, but still want the kids to cool off, check out these water balloon games you can play in the backyard.
