If you're entertaining smaller-sized guests, some extra TLC is in order: Take a safety check. Walk around your front and backyard and look for hazards such as forgotten tools or toys that can be tripped over, overgrown foilage that might be prickly to a 2- or 3-foot child walking by, loose deck boards and even insect homes. (Bees, ants and wasps can lure a curious child!) Keep tabs on your toy supply. Even if you don’t have kids, it’s nice to have a few basic toys around so kids are entertained outdoors.
