The school year is winding down, which means that it is almost time to enjoy the summer months with your family! Are you ready to make it a memorable summer by planning fun activities with your kids? Right now is a great time to prepare your home so that you have the perfect property for a fun summer season.

Here are a few simple steps that you can follow before the kids get out of school to turn your house into a summer dream home:

Plan Family Activities

There is no doubt that you will be spending time at the lake, playing at the park, or enjoying a ball game. But, you also need to be ready for fun activities at home with the family as well. When you invite the neighbors over for a BBQ, or possibly VRBO renters are you ready to host?

Spending quality time outside is a great way to enjoy the weather. Prepare for these activities by cleaning out the shed or garage and taking inventory of the sports equipment is available. Pump up the football and the bike tires, fire up the grill, and consider investing in new shelves and containers to keep your sports equipment organized.

Cool Off on the Hot Summer Days

Do you have a backyard pool? Then make sure that you are current with the maintenance of the pumps and cleaners. If you don’t have a built-in pool, then consider getting a wading pool for the kids or a larger above-ground pool for the entire family.

These home upgrades can be as simple as setting up a store-bought pool and filling it with water. Or, you can invest in a built-in pool with water slides, waterfall features, and a diving board making your summer dream home an oasis of fun.

Even something as simple as a quick run through the sprinklers can be a great activity for the kids. Make sure that mom has a sunbed to relax and sunbathe while the kids are splashing around.

Backyard Relaxation

There is nothing better than kicking your feet up on the porch to relax after the kids have gone to bed. When you have a cold drink in hand and comfortable patio furniture, you can enjoy the evening with friends in the comfort of your backyard. Consider installing a gazebo to beautify the yard and create a natural gathering area.

Also, think about other details that will make the yard more comfortable. For example, you might use a mosquito net or hang up mosquito-repelling lamps. There are also tiki torches that can be used to improve the appearance of the yard and keep the bugs away at the same time, making your summer dream home into a tropical retreat.
