Are Your Kids Driving You Crazy This Summer? A Patio Cover Can Help!

Summer is a time of year that kids traditionally like. But this summer is unlike any summer experienced in anybody’s lifetime as the global coronavirus outbreak has largely required people to socially distance themselves from other people. What do you do if your kids are at home during the summer and you don’t want them to spend too much time cooped up indoors? What you can do is equip your Davis, CA home with a patio cover. That way your kids will have some overhead protection while getting outside of the house throughout the day.

Here are some ways you can use a patio deck with a patio cover to help your kids enjoy the summer that is unlike anything they, or you for that matter, have ever experienced before.

Lunch Outside, Anyone? 

One way you can get your kids outside of the house is by allowing them to eat lunch outside on the back deck. You won’t have to worry about them being over-exposed to the sun or getting wet from the rain since the patio cover will offer all the necessary protection. You might even want to cook their lunch outdoors. You can have a barbeque or find other ways to prepare at least some of the food outdoors. While you’re at it, you might also want to have dinner outside as well. Chances are your kids won’t complain about being able to get out of the stuffy house.

Arts and Crafts 

Assuming your kids are of the age where arts and crafts are considered a fun activity, you can designate a time where they go outside and take part in some fun activities on the back porch. This can involve coloring in a coloring book, working on a scrapbook, or doing something else that engages their senses and satisfies their need for some wholesome fun.


You won’t want your children running around on the back deck, but who said they can’t play some fun board games? You likely have some board games in your home. Choose some fun games that your kids love to play, and let them play the games on the back deck. By the way – video games don’t count. They can play video games inside, so allow them to do something away from the TV screen, mobile phone screen, or tablet screen while they’re outdoors.
