Plan a backyard family night

by webdev

April 17, 2012

The weather is warming up around the nation, and a great way to embrace the pleasant temperatures is to have a fun outdoor family night. Getting kids to play outside is becoming a real problem in the U.S. and taking the time to plan fun activities in the backyard may help pique your kids' interest in the great outdoors. 

Hosting a fun-filled outdoor night starts with food. Grilling is the ultimate way to announce spring and summer's arrival, so parents should plan to fill up the grill's gas tank beforehand to cook some festive foods. Pick up some chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs along with fresh vegetables like summer squash or peppers to add some serious flavor to your cookout. Finish the meal with a fan favorite dessert like s'mores that the kids can cook over the flames.

Playing a few games is also key to a fun night with your youngsters. You could set up an obstacle course in the backyard or even decide to go for a family bike ride once your meal is finished.

Nothing says spring is here better than fresh flowers.  Although your garden may not be blooming yet, it doesn't mean you can't have affordable flowers on your picnic table. A collection of spring tulips like like Teleflora's Spring Equinox is sure to brighten up your outdoor affair. This bouquet of yellow asiatic lilies, roses and tulips paired with purple hydrangea and hyacinth offer a pop of color and the smells of springtime. The flowers come in a stunning and modern crystal vase that can be used to house your own garden blooms once summer arrives.
