If you’ve got little ones that absolutely love playing outside, why not think about transforming your yard into a magical outdoor space that they can play in each and every day?

Whilst having a few bits and bobs in the garden for kids to play with is all well and good, transforming your backyard into a place they love can be a pricey task - but 100% worth it when they’re asking to play outside every day (rather than staying in on their computers or phones).

With that in mind, here are 8 ways to create a magical outdoor space that is absolutely perfect for adventurous kids:

Ask Your Kids What They’d Like To Have In Their GardenBefore you get started on building your children’s dream outdoor space, try asking them what they’d like to see. They may have some wild answers and you might not be able to do everything they want, but it will help give you an idea of where to begin. If you’re feeling extra brave, why not ask them to draw what their dream backyard would look like?

Upgrade Any Old Windows And Doors For Safety
If you’re regularly going to be having your children going in and out of your house and into the backyard, you’re going to want to make sure your windows and doors are safe. It only takes one second for you to look away and your child has opened the door wrong or thrown a football through your window - so ensuring they’re good quality and safe is essential. If you’re looking for a company that does this, why not try Maine Windows and Doors?

Add Colour, Without Looking Tacky
Whilst a lot of people don’t like to add too much colour to their garden, there are lots of different ways to do it without it coming across as tacky. A great way to do this is to create colourful barrels that line a small area for your kids to play in, sectioning off their space and allowing you to use your yard for what you want too!

Use Lots Of Fairy Lights
Having fairy lights in your yard is the perfect way to create a space that looks incredibly magical to children. The little sparkles of light will make them feel as though they’re walking through the forest trying to spot real-life fairies! If you’re stuck for ideas on how to use lights in your garden, there’s lots and lots of inspiration on sites like Pinterest and Instagram.

Create An Easy To Use Path Throughout The Whole Garden
If your kids are going to be walking in and out of the house and backyard all day, creating a path they can easily walk on will make things easier for both you and them. Not only will it stop them from waking on the grass, but it will mean that there is much less mud being brought into your house. Besides, jumping on the stepping stones can be fun for adults too, right?

Add Toys And Things To Play With
A kids play area wouldn’t be complete without some toys to play with and luckily, there are lots of different backyard toys available to purchase! Whether you get a slide, swing or splash out on a swimming pool - your kits will absolutely love having fun outside in the warmer weather!

Use Their Favourite TV And Movie Characters
If you’re going to get creative when designing your children’s outdoor space then why not consider using their favourite TV and Movie characters? There are lots of different ways you can incorporate them into this space including having decals on the fence or by using themed and branding toys. Whichever way you choose, your kids will absolutely love feeling as though they’re hanging out with their favourite characters!

Install A Speaker And Play Their Favourite Songs
Installing a speaker in your garden isn’t difficult and if you keep it at a reasonable volume (so as not to disturb your neighbors), then you’ll be able to play music in the background as they play. Not only does this encourage them to get used to background noise, but it encourages them to become more and more interested in music and performing arts.
