What were the Top Outside Activities this Summer?

Sharing is caring!

Trees have always been a vital part of summer backyard fun, and this summer proved that to still be the case. There were activities that popped up on neighborhood canvases that were as hot as they were in years past as well as new concepts that gained momentum, as families enjoyed a break from school and had longer days to get creative.


The most classic way the backyard was used this summer was in building the traditional tree house, allowing kiddos to have a space away from the main home and allowing adults a bit of respite from the noise that accompanies the trekking of neighborhood children through the living room on a constant basis. With a few pieces of outdoor furniture placed in it and fun, vibrant colors painted in and around it, the kids never want to leave. Nowadays, however, another trend has also popped up as zip lines are being built in backyards, strung between trees or even building structures, allowing a little extra touch of adventure and a quick adrenaline rush. The two ideas have been easily blended by building the perfect tree house with a sturdy zip line accessible to get down in a flash.

    We have the perfect tree for building a treehouse in the backyard. We’ll have to get busy on that next summer.
