Utilize Your Liv Community's Outdoor Spaces
Spring has finally arrived, and it's time to launch your plans for all of the exciting outdoor activities you've been waiting for. As a member of our community, you have access to a variety of outdoor areas and services that make enjoying the great outdoors simple. It's time to utilize your Liv community's outdoor spaces!
Whether you like spending time at the community's bark park, public picnic and barbeque areas, or your own private balcony or patio, this article offers some wonderful ideas for little outdoor activities that may have a big influence on you, your family, and your neighbors.
Celebrate a Dog's Birthday Party
You can still have a party for your dog, no matter what season they were born in. Invite your neighbors with dogs to join the fun. Set up games such as Frisbee catch or yoga ball soccer for the four-legged attendees, as well as enjoyable activities like Frisbee golf, horseshoes, and croquet for the two-legged guests.
For this party, make sure the dogs invited are compatible. Bullies or aggressive canines may ruin the enjoyment for everyone, including humans. It's also a good idea to try to keep the sizes of the dogs invited roughly similar. Even a mild Great Dane might be frightening to a teacup Yorkshire Terrier.
Don't forget the snacks. Make sure there's plenty of clean drinking water available for the dogs and provide each with a doggie bag filled with appropriate food for their size. These bags may be enjoyed later at home by their human companions, so there are no squabbles over goodies.
Unlike dogs, most humans are good buddies, so feel free to serve food and beverages to the guests. You may also grill some burgers and hot dogs if the barbeque area is close by. If not, provide people with handheld snacks and coolers of cold beverages where they can relax while their pets frolic in the bark park.
Organize a Potluck Picnic
Picnics have been enjoyed by many people for generations. Set a date and invite your neighbors to bring their favorite picnic foods. Choose a theme, such as a beach day, the American flag, or a particular nation to commemorate, and encourage your guests to bring foods that fit the description.
If you're hosting a party, you'll want to give your guests something to do so they don't become bored. Not everyone is good at small talk or mingling, which is why it's important to provide some sort of entertainment. A Bluetooth-enabled karaoke machine may be just the thing to break the ice and get people interacting with each other. For individuals who don't enjoy being in the limelight, a table set aside for board games or cards might be just what they need to get over their initial shyness.
Whether you're throwing a barbecue or potluck, it's always a good idea to make a signup sheet or email chain so that you can ensure there are plenty of different foods and beverages. You don't want the five-layer dip to be the only hors d'oeuvre on the table, no matter how delicious it is.
Get the Cards on the Table
Set up a card table on your deck or patio, invite a few friends over, and spend the night playing cards or board games under the stars for a more personal gathering. This is an excellent low-key method to meet new neighbors or get to know community members in little chunks.
Provide food and drink for the players as well as other forms of entertainment for those waiting for their turn to play. Try to keep the competitive aspect of the games down at least until everyone is more familiar with one another.
If the party goes well, try to persuade one of the attendees to host a similar gathering the next month. It may be the beginning of a wonderful tradition, and you'll get to know your neighbors better as a result.
The Kids Want Some Fun Too!
Children adore having a good time in little outdoor areas. While all the kids who reside in Liv Multifamily communities enjoy easy access to a play area and free outdoor space to run and play in, they may still obtain benefits from an organized active game or educational natural play.
One fantastic approach to get youngsters outside to appreciate nature is to give them magnifying glasses and urge them to examine the natural world around them more closely. Looking through a magnifying glass will offer them a fresh perspective and pique their natural interest, whether they discover the internal mechanisms of a grass blade or the wings of a butterfly resting nearby.
Of course, on a hot summer's day, there is nothing children like more than water. Water guns can be filled and handed out to the kids in buckets. They may fill them up quickly and simply without the use of a hose or the waste it produces.
Water balloons are similarly fun, but they're only appropriate for older kids. Have them pre-fill their water balloons before the fight begins so they don't have to keep running inside once the battle starts. Also, make sure that they understand that the final part of the enjoyment is collecting up all of the pieces of popped balloons and putting them away.
Build a Sense of Community
These are just a few of the numerous methods in which you may use your community's outdoor areas to entertain your friends and family, as well as foster a genuine community made up of individuals who really know one another.
