It is true that people don’t really have the disposition for weekend projects during the winter, because it is cold, the days seem shorter and so they prefer to sit in front of the TV rather then do house work. But winter is over and it is time for the summer weekend projects. There are so many things to do, so let’s get it started.
Did you ever consider having a herb planter? You can easily get one if you transform your child’s old wagon into a mobile planter. This way you will be able to ‘transport’ the plans from the sun-steeped corner right to the kitchen door.
A lot of families have a large tree in their yard, and this is something you could make use of. Create a wood bench all around the trunk of the tree. There will be enough room for the entire family, and you will have the possibility to lounge there with your favorite book all summer long, enjoying the shade of the tree. The bench will look like it is a part of the tree.
Create an outdoor kitchen. You can have everything you want and everything you need, or everything your budget allows you to get. The cooking is easy to handle, all you need is some workspace, a table and some chairs. You could also add some sofas for the guests to enjoy while you are working on dinner.
Having some fun with the kids is easy during the summer. In case they are bored you could offer to build them a lemonade stand. This is a project that has a built-in reward for them. You can be sure that it will spark some creative interest in them and it will develop their entrepreneurial spirit.
You could make your background even more fun by adding some items needed for certain games. You should consider those games that are fun and that require skill and strategy, such as bocce, croquet and horseshoes.
The best thing about having a house is that you also have a garden. You have the possibility to grow here numerous kinds of fruits and vegetables. You get to enjoy the sweetness of the freshly picked blueberries, and also the tomatoes that are still warm from the sun. You should consider those plants that don’t require a lot of space or care, but that offer you the products that you would like to have.
