Fun Activities You Can Enjoy on Your Deck

Now that ‘deck’ season is officially here, what activities can you do besides the stereotypical grill n’ chill? Here are seven ideas to get your creativity moving:

1. Exercise: Why remain stuck inside running through your exercise routine when you have a deck? There is plenty of room to enjoy yoga in the fresh air. Play some music and dance through your Zumba routine. The entire time you have the sounds of Mother Nature embracing you.

2. Add a hot tub: There is no better way to end a stressful day than soaking in swirling hot water jets. Station your hot tub on or beside your deck as a convenient step from the house to the spa.

3. Nap: Fold down the lawn furniture under your pergola and take a refreshing nap. Do you feel the breeze caressing your face? Yes, your backyard haven can be your new naptime destination on a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

4. Play Live Music: Grab your guitar or ukelele and call some friends to sit around the fire and sing songs. This may become a favorite Friday night activity.

5. Have a sleepover: Build a deck fort and let the kids invite some friends over with their sleeping bags. With plenty of blankets, pillows, and snacks, the kids will have a fabulous time.

6. Family game night: Bring out the pizza and board games and have a family game night. Show your children all the fun you grew up with. You can also learn some new ones that your kids love. This is a fantastic opportunity to build lasting memories for everyone.

7. Movie night: Another outside option is to project a movie on a screen or the side of your house. Make your popcorn, buy some movie theater-style candy, and enjoy your favorite movies. You can even develop snack themes around different flicks on your list.
