There are many ways to spend your vacation days during the summer. You can go on vacation to another country with your family. You can also dedicate yourself to reading that novel that you have always wanted but never had time to do. Hang out with friends and just chat. Or spend time playing with your children in your backyard. Do you want to have the most fun with your children? Having trouble figuring out what to do? Here are six incredibly fun and easy ideas to achieve at little or no cost:

1. Sprinkler limb

Many of today’s children have no idea what limbo is. Do you remember the days you spent playing and how much fun you had? This is an even better variation. It is no different in terms of rules. Of course, you can always add some, if you like. The difference is that you can cool off with water while playing. At almost no cost, you can make it happen. All you need is a meter long PVC pipe (or a piece of garden hose). Drill holes in it, plug one end, and firmly connect the other to the hose. Turn on the water and let the games begin!

2. Pirate Day

You can see this game in many spas, where there is entertainment for the guests. Why not do it yourself? It is not difficult at all! All you need is a little imagination, paper, cardboard, pencils and a treasure (mainly candy, but you can get something better, like a toy). If you have face painting it will be even better, since you can paint eye patches, scars, etc. The role is to make a map of your backyard, pointing out your treasure. You cut the map into pieces and hide them in various places around the garden. You keep one piece, so you can start somewhere. You can also burn the edges of the paper with a lighter to give it that old pirate look. From cardboard you can cut swords (it is good to tape the edges as they can be sharp). You are ready to start your adventure. Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of juice!

3. sponge ball

Venturing into an epic clash. This is the place where the kings of the five kingdoms meet in a final battle. What determines who will be the sole ruler. I got carried away a bit, but adding a story to each game makes it more fun. All you need here are sponges and buckets of water. May the one with the best aim win!

4. Make a water wall

Than? Shall we build a wall of water? Well, no. The idea is to make a system that carries water from one place to another in a fun way. The materials needed are empty plastic bottles, PVC pipes, or old hoses (or basically anything you can pour water into and make a hole). Other things you may need are string or nails and a hammer. So that’s how it all comes together. You need a tall vertical wall (your backyard fence is great for this). You attach all those bottles, pipes, etc. cascading from the top to the bottom of the wall. Make sure that when you pour water into the upper container, the hole you drilled in the bottom or side is directly above the hole in the lower container. Now start pouring and enjoy what you have achieved.

5. Play dirty

Playing in a sandbox is fun. Playing in a pile of dirt, which easily turns to mud or molds like clay, can be even better. Here kids can model a Martian landscape and go on missions with their toy armies. They can also use toy earth moving trucks to move the earth. Rocks can provide structure for mountains or roads. Just make sure you don’t leave them unattended, they can wreak havoc on your garden. After that, you will surely need gardening services to help you repair the damage they had done.

6. Watch a movie under the stars

After an exhausting game day, what better than a movie with the whole family. All you need is a large white sheet and a projector. Lie back under the stars and enjoy your quality time together.
