5 Great Toys for Outside Fun

In Kids, Toys by Tracy1 Comment

Spring has sprung and all of the kids are now outside running around with their friends.  I’ve now spent time shopping for simple outdoor toys to replenish our stash from last Fall when the cold brought us indoors.


Some of our favorite simple outdoor toys are:

Sidewalk chalk!  We keep a large stash of chalk and seem to still need to resupply as the Summer progresses. Chalk is perfect for drawing and painting(just add water) and for that impromptu game of hopscotch. I love that Crayola makes a 52 pack!


Jump ropes!  Single and double ropes are a requirement here for lots of outdoor fun! We love these durable braided ropes from Creative Kidstuff.

Water play! I love a fun new sprinkler every year to mix-up the fun for the kids. How cool is this Geyser Blast from ToysRus!

Sports! It’s great to pick up some new balls to kick around and for playing catching and a pick-up game of baseball or soccer. Love this sports set from Wal-Mart.


And let’s not forget bubbles! I love the new colored bubbles from Crayola!
