5 Must-Haves for Backyard Fall Fun
Bugs and backyards just go hand in hand. Whether you choose to use traditional bug spray, citronella candles, tiki torches, or a bug scarf, be ready to enjoy the backyard without pesky insects. The Featherlight Infinity Scart with Insect Shield®, repels mosquitoes, ticks, flies, fleas, chiggers, ants, and midges (no-see-ums), with only a small amount of long-lasting active ingredients.
This scarf is super soft made with natural fibers in a luxurious modal/silk blend fabric. Available in four colors and able to be worn in multiple ways. It’s super light and perfect for all your backyard adventures.
Water Proof Boots
Gear up for wading in the creek even though the water is getting too cold for bare feet. These Muckster boots have been my go-to shoes for backyard fun for several years. These are perfect for rainy days when the yard is muddy or walking in the creek even when the leaves are changing colors.
Bucket & Shovel
You just never know what treasures you may find when you explore down by the creek. Sometimes you find special rocks, fossils, or unique leaves and sticks. Make sure everyone has a bucket that is ‘just their size’.
For the little folks in your life, this Hape Fold and Go Beach Set makes every day a playtime adventure! This bright and colorful set features a stylish, collapsible pail that folds almost flat, a sturdy shovel, and sea creature sand molds! The waterproof pail can hold water or sand, or is the perfect accessory to collect treasures! When you’re done having fun in the sun, simply empty the bucket, fold it flat, and pack it into its cute fish-shaped nylon carry case for easy, mess-free transportation!
Picnic & S’mores
No backyard adventure is complete without all the classic snacks and picnic foods. Gather the ingredients for S’mores, hot dogs and chips so you are ready to feed the hungry gang after all the fun.
Camp in the Backyard
Late summer, early fall is the perfect season for backyard camping. Whether you choose to camp out all night or end up sleeping in your own bed, pitching a tent in the backyard can lead to great memories with the family.
