Here are a few more ideas for adding shade to your yard so the children can play out of the direct sunlight.

  • Shade Cloths: These are similar to shade sails, but they are made from a material like mesh or netting that can block out a certain percentage of sunlight.
  • Pop-up Canopy Tents: These are portable and easy to set up, providing large area of shade.
  • Enclosed Play Structures: Some children’s play structures have shade built-in, with roofs or awnings over the play area.
  • Tree Shade: Planting trees strategically can provide not only shade but also a beautiful landscape.
  • Playhouse: A kid-sized structure like a playhouse can provide plenty of shade and also stimulate creative play.
  • Sunscreen Curtains or Blinds: If you have a patio or porch, installing curtains, blinds, or outdoor drapes can help to create a shaded area.
  • Plant Vines: Fast-growing vines over lattice can create a shaded spot with a more natural look.
  • Sun Shelters: These are similar to pop-up tents but are typically larger and more permanent.
  • Retractable Sun Shade: Installed onto the side of a house or on a frame, it can be extended when necessary.
