THE FUN HUB – BACKYARD  EXCITEMENT AND IDEAS 

Participating in backyard social events is the perfect way to build pleasant family memories. This website’s goal is to provide unique content and fun for both children and adults. Fun-Hub is more about getting memorable experiences; these events help reinforce family relationships while still offering tremendous health benefits.

Your Way Around 

The top menu on this page will take you to four key areas, explanation pages click backyard cookingbackyard projects, backyard fitness, and backyard games. Feel free to browse these topics and posts for inspiration and ideas to make your backyard become the fun hub it should.

Who am I

I am the 40-year-old father of a delightful teenage daughter from Aotearoa, New Zealand.
I’ve served in the hospitality sector, as a chef, and in education; my experiences have taught me the value of having fun, which motivated me to create this website.

I’ll never forget playing Swing Ball and Hacky sacks in the backyard with my family and friends when I was a child. I appreciate all forms of outdoor cooking, including the popular Aotearoa Hangi.

Why You Should Care 

It should be recognized that backyard games provide more than just provide amusement and positive family memories. They provide people with outstanding wellbeing and wellness, thus enhancing the potential of both children and adults.

Participating in various outdoor activities may have a range of potential emotional, psychological, and physiological consequences. Prophylactic implications for various illnesses such as vitamin D deficiency, osteoporosis, and myopia have since been shown in adolescents and older adults.

There are many enjoyable ways to spend time in your backyard with relatives or a partner. If you can’t think of something, Fun-Hub is here to help encourage you, regardless of your budget or the scale of your backyard.

I so appreciate your time here at fun hub any suggestions quires comments all welcome feel free to leave a comment if you wish so.

  1. What a great idea for a website. In fact now more than ever when we are housebound, I am sure that everyone is looking for great ideas to keep them entertained while at home or in lockdown, as many parts of the world are at the moment.

    I also have fond memories of when I was a child and we used to play cricket in our back garden. The neighbourhood kids all used to come and join in, and we made so many friends in this way.

    My Mom also often organised picnics in our garden complete with a scavenger hunt.

    • Funny you should mention cricket, Michel. I’m currently working on another blog about kids and cricket backyard cricket. Scavenger sounds like a great idea fantastic. I’m so glad you took the time to read the about me page. 

      This is the way friends are made the real way having fun together 

      Many Thanks

  2. Thank you for sharing your reasons for making this website.

    I can remember playing swing ball many many times in the garden when I was younger.  It was a great way for us to have fun as a family, as we all took turns, with the winner staying on.

    We used to push it into the grass, but before long it would start to rock in the ground and have to be moved again!!!

    I think memories are wonderful things for children to take with them into teenage years and into adulthood.  They will never be forgotten.  Thanks for reminding me of some of mine.

    Keep up the good work.
