Summer BBQ Fun Kids Activities

The kids had a blast and so did the parents at our Backyard Discovery BBQ! There is nothing like hot dogs on the grill and outside fun for kids!  This is what great summer memories are made of. Running, climbing, swinging, laughing, and playing should be the focus of summer for all kids.

Backyard Discovery Outdoor Party Activities

Kids have fun on playsets no matter what. You really don’t need to plan outdoor party activities for kids to have fun. However, if you are like me, I love to engage kids in new activities. Backyard Discovery gave us a fun list of activities to get the party started.

Swing Off Competition

We had a Swing Off Competition until the kids got a little too competitive! They really soared on the swings including my 3 year old! I remember as a kid loving to swing as high as I could and feeling the adrenalin when I got to the point where I just wasn’t sure if I’d fall out of the swing! No falls today at our BBQ but as a mom watching, I feel the nervousness lots sooner. lol

Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunts are a personal favorite of mine. I always loved going on scavenger hunts as a kid and teenager and love to plan them as an adult. Since we live in the woods, we had a nature scavenger hunt. Kids got points for spotting birds, fossils, toads, salamanders, flowers, birds nest, and the ever popular blackberries!

Backyard Discovery Playset Fun

We were lucky enough as a Backyard Discovery Brand Ambassador to have everything necessary for a great summer BBQ, a great spread of BBQ favorites, sunscreen, cool shades for the kids, bug spray, and of course all the entertainment you could ever ask for on the Patriot playset.  The kids had a super fun time exploring the new set and my kids loved teaching the ropes!

The kids had the most fun exploring and playing on the Patriot Playset. It’s so fun to see kid having fun together without parents intervening. Of course, we were nearby watching the kids but they played and played and played so well together the whole time.
