Everyone is feeling the crunch on their pocketbooks and are looking for ways to still maintain the lifestyle they are used to while not spending as much money as they used to. If you have children, the tightened budget can be especially harsh and as summer nears, being able to keep the kids occupied without buying new toys can be a real challenge.
Thankfully, you are not alone in your quest! The ever expanding world of recycling, reusing, and upcycling items than would normally be considered trash have found new purpose in the backyard playing areas across the country. Kids can be hard on their toys, especially those used outdoors and replacing them usually brings a hefty price tag with it. With a little imagination and inspiration, you can turn your backyard into an adventure of activities to explore. The best part? It costs nothing or very little to implement these ideas!
