Fun Things To Do In Your Backyard This Summer
The kids are out of school and we’re excited to make the most of the summer by spending lots of time outdoors. This past couple of months staying at home we’ve found lots of ways to enjoy spending time in our backyard beyond just grilling.
Summer is the perfect time to take full advantage of grilling. We love grilling everything from steak to veggies and even pizza. And we don’t just grill lunch and dinner, there are also lots of great breakfast and brunch recipes you can make on the grill to change things around.
And don’t forget dessert! From grilled pound cake to s’mores, cooking dessert is more fun when over the grill or fire pit!
I always use BIC® Multi-purpose Lighters to light up my grill or fire pit. They are reliable and make lighting any fire hassle-free and safe.
Fun and games
Enjoying your backyard is all about creating fun activities for the entire family. We have a few backyard games including cornhole, bean bag toss, and jenga, which we always take out when we’re cooking outdoors. We also love to organize backyard movie nights and watch a movie outdoors while we eat popcorn. It’s so much fun!
Enjoy a backyard picnic
We love to go to the park and to the beach but since we’re spending more time at home we’ve also come up with fun ways to spend time outside while staying home. One of our favorite things to do is eat outside and what could be better than a backyard picnic. It’s a fun way to make any meal special, from a brunch picnic to dinner under the stars.
Celebrate special occasions outdoors
We have a few celebrations during the summer including a couple of birthday celebrations. Even if we’re celebrating just with immediate family throwing a backyard birthday party is always so much fun. And to light up the candles we always have BIC® Multi-purpose Lighters

I have it but in common and I must say that I use it less than I would like, although in summer it is really a breath of fresh air!
I am looking forward to do some barbecues in my garden. I am currently working on getting it nice and ready for summer, with new flower beds and a dedicated grilling area.
These are some great ideas. We love to grill out over the summer. In fact, we’re doing it on Friday for my birthday!
I cant wait for BBQ weather! Im so excited
I love the backyard picnic idea is so fun and so romantic. These are some cute ideas to do in our backyard.
Given that this summer is so unique in so many different ways, and all the families are trying to explore new and exciting ways to spend time at home, this post is very relevant to all.
These are some fun things to do. Thanks for the link to the sweepstakes. I’m going to enter now!
Such fun ideas to enjoy summer. I love that you can do it all without going anywhere!
After reading this, I really wish if I had a backyard. These are real fun activities to do.
We hang out outside as much as possible in the summer as I live in the NorthEast and the nice weather does not last very long so I soak it up! Love these tips and they are all wonderful tings to do in the backyard …. I also love camping out and having a camp out session which can be really fun for the kiddos.
Summer is here, so this is a great chance to spend more time in the backyard. I will look into Bic lighters for lighting my grill up. Thanks for the information.
Love the idea of a backyard picnic … perfect for the family specially during the lockdown.
omg these things really sounds amazing to do in this summer..Thanks for sharing them..will surely try these out..Loved this…
I love to BBQ outside and run around with the grandkids.
I need to make better use of my backgarden this year, especially as we are still locked down at the minute.
We just love grilling out all Summer long. We have several Bic lighters to help light the grill, our favorite brand of lighter!!!
Those are all great ideas when you have a back yard. When you just have a balcony then you have to get really creative.
Outside cooking is really the best thing to do outside with the family. I wish this pandemic end soon so I can invite the family over lunch.
Every summer, we have two big parties, one for our friends and another for the family. There is enough room to set up a long table to arrange the food, a barbecue pit at one end and an inflatable pool for the kids in another corner. Sadly, none of that is going to happen this summer, and the very thought is heart-wrenching.
