Swings are not just for the kids! They make for a relaxing way to enjoy warm weather in your backyard. Plus, they are one of the easiest and cheapest projects on this list to complete. All you need is a rope, a plank of wood and a sturdy tree. Go flying at a minimum cost!

Take advantage of the warm weather while it lasts. Take whatever you have at your disposal and create a project that you can tackle on the weekends.

There are many fun ways to pass the time as cool as possible and remember–seasons come and seasons go. And there’s always another summer, somewhere around the corner.
