    5 Fun Outdoor Learning Activities You and Your Kids Will Love
    Schools may close for the rest of the academic year, and summer youth activities are up in the air. So, can we keep our children’s minds busy when they stay home? There are several outdoor learning activities that can take place on a laptop or a television screen. However, there are also many outdoor learning activities that can take place right in your backyard, and don’t require the Internet!
    Let’s look at 5 fun outdoor learning activities that your kids will love, and can be done in the backyard:

  2. Event and Party Tents: Should You Rent or Buy?

    Event and Party Tents: Should You Rent or Buy?

    Event tents are an ideal way to shelter guests from the elements no matter what type of party you’re throwing. Perfect for weddings, corporate events, or even backyard barbecues, party tents and shades will make guests more comfortable and allow your get-together to go off without a hitch. Many people aren’t sure whether to rent or buy an event tent. There are pros and cons to each, and you should first figure out how you’re planning to use party tents before making a decision.

    Ways to Use Event Tents

    When most people think of event tents, they automatically think of an outdoor wedding. While that is an incredibly popular reason to purchase or rent party tents, there are many different ways you can use these shelter solutions:
    • Corporate event: There are many different reasons businesses gather employees together. Whether it’s a celebration, training, or retreat, party tents can be utilized to shelter guests or even provide a space for them to check in to the main event held indoors.
    • Tailgate: People take the big game seriously these days, and that means bigger than ever tailgating parties. Maybe it’s your favorite professional sports team, or an end of the year event for your child’s baseball team. Either way, event tents will provide shelter and boost the fun factor.
    • Backyard barbecue: The heat can damper any backyard event if your guests have no place to escape from the sun. Provide shade and shelter with an event tent.
    • Birthday parties: Whether you’re throwing a children’s party or fancier sweet 16 bash, party tents can create the ambiance you’re looking for.
    • School festivals: School fundraising events are a great way to use event tents, providing a place for shelter, games, and a great area to eat food.
    • Farmers markets: Store the food you’re selling under an event tent, and people have more time to browse while staying out of the sun. Not to mention, your goods will be sheltered from the elements as well.
    • Rest area: Sometimes you may not want to use party tents for an actual party. Perhaps you have workers on your property for a large event and need a space for them to rest or get out of the sun.
    Event tents are ideal for making sure you and your guests have proper sun protection.... At the end
