The weather is beautiful ideas for out door fun?

We have an itty bitty back yard with steep downward hills on 3 sides and going to the park isnt so fun cause theres always older kids swearing and smoking there. So any ideas?

Hmm at our house we blow bubbles(she loves bubbles), use sidewalk chalk, throw ball, race, play tag, she uses her shovel and pail to scoop up gravel, I push her on the trike, she can ride a scooter on her own, we hunt for treasures in the grass(something that extra beautiful or different that we can find).
If she out with her cousins it's a different story, they mainly play w/ each other

Do you have a driveway for bike riding, outdoor chalk drawing? Is there a tree to hang a few swings from? You can still play catch in a small yard, or tag, duck/duck/goose. DS likes to play bocce ball and croquet in our small yard that heads down hill at about a 30 degree angle. In the summer, we have the most awesome slip and slide because of the hill. what about a small sandbox?

What about other parks? or going at different times when maybe the older kids aren't there?

oh croquet would be cool. the hills on our yard are very bad and if anything goes down 2 of the 3 hills we arent getting them back lol. We ar moving in 2 months so I cant get anything permanent like a sand box, we do have a slip n slide but its not that hot out yet I cant wait til it is.

p.s. drive way is gravel yuck.

Kids love HULA HOOPS

They are fun for adults too, so you can play along and get exercise.
