Let Your Backyard Entertain Your Kids Cumming, GA
Back Yard Cumming GA

So far, in 2020, life has handed us some extra time at home with our families. Without our normal routines and busy schedules, it is not uncommon for kids to get restless and bored more frequently. Instead of resorting to hours of screen time, here are some creative ways that children of all ages can stay entertained at home, and in your own backyard.

Backyard Activities for Young Children

Whether you have toddlers or elementary-aged kids, your outdoor space is the perfect way to burn their energy. In many cases, young kids just need a little guidance with how to spend their energy. Here is a list of fun outside activities that your kids can do outside while staying within your sight:

  • Blow bubbles.
  • Use a ball and sticks and play hockey.
  • Pretend to “fix” things with play tools.
  • Scavenger hunt.
  • Look for bugs and take pictures with a smartphone.
  • Create art using only items found in nature.
  • Kick a ball around. Add a stick to turn it into hockey.
  • Sidewalk chalk.
  • Backyard talent show or dance-off.
  • Spread out a blanket and have a picnic, read or do “online school” outside.
  • Create a fairy garden.
  • Build a birdfeeder.
  • Construct a rock drop or maze using paper towel rolls, tape and a fence.
  • Play Freeze-Tag, “Mother May I?” or Hide-and-Go-Seek.
  • Create an obstacle course and compete for time.
  • Plant a garden.

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

Denise D.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Peter G.

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
