What can I do in my small backyard?

I live in a duplex and have a small yard and tons of weeds in it. How can make it a place to sit with the kids? I'm not looking to spend a whole lot of money but definitely willing to spend some to make it a place we can enjoy. My kids are 2yrs and 5yrs. I'm home during the days and would like to spend summer in my backyard

    Can you lay down some patio pavers to provide a seating area? Plant some creeping thyme between the pavers to help smother out the weeds. Use some colorful chair pads to brighten up your area. Add a small outdoor pool and maybe a sandbox for the kids. Put up a shepherd's hook a hang a couple of plants or bird houses from it.

      Thank you for the idea! Never heard of planting thyme for weeds! The kids definitely want a sandbox if nothing else at all!
