Staycation This Long Weekend? Ideas To Have Fun In Your Backyard!
The long weekend is quickly approaching and many people are getting ready to head north for their first cottage trip of the year or south for a quick weekend getaway. But if you’re sticking close to home, you don’t have to miss out on the fun! You can plan the best staycation right in your backyard.
It’s not where you are, it’s who you’re with!
Having a picturesque background is obviously beautiful, but it’s not a requirement for a good time—the company is! Round up your friends and family that are staying in the area for the long weekend and invite them over for some fun and laughs. With the right people, it really doesn’t matter where you are, you’ll always have fun together!
Food makes everything better
Everyone loves a good BBQ, so pull the grill out of storage and plan on spending the day outside showing off your grilling skills! Hosting a long weekend party doesn’t have to be expensive or stressful—ask everyone to bring a side dish to share and then you’ll have time to socialize with your friends instead of being stuck in the kitchen.
Bring some laughs into your long weekend and reinvent some of your favourite games for the backyard. With a little imagination, any game can be turned into a life-size, outdoor version:
Jenga: While a tad more dangerous than the tabletop version, life-size Jenga is sure to create a buzz at your backyard party. A number of online retailers sell the game or if you have a little DIY spirit, you can build one yourself.
Twister: A little spray paint on your lawn can turn your backyard into a life-size twister mat. Just make sure to stretch before attempting to contort yourself into those picture-worthy twister positions!
