Last weekend we got our first taste of Summer and wasn’t it lovely? I bet your kids loved going outside and playing. We looked through our box of outdoor toys and gave it a bit of a Spring Clean. Many had not fared well from being left outside all winter and others, the girls had simply outgrown. If you are like us, now is the perfect time to stock up on a few new outdoor toys that will encourage outdoor living over the coming months. Here’s my favourite 8, that I stock.
Let your children get creative on your road or drive with this box of outdoor chalks. Perfect for little children and older children too, who can set up games like four square with just a ball and some chalk. If you don’t want to buy such a big box of chalks, I also stock smaller boxes of street chalk here.
These kites are great fun on windy days at the park or beach. They fold up nicely and are light to carry.
These pink ones with heart designs is beautiful. If this pink one doesn’t take your fancy, you can find all the skipping ropes available on my website here. They range from patterns to plain simple wooden handle ropes.
There’s no better time to learn how to juggle than in the summer when you can practice outside! This set of 3 balls is a perfect starter set.
This extra long skipping rope is perfect for playing skipping with your friends.
7. Flying Rings
Have fun learning to throw and catch these frisbees. They are fun for the whole family.
Toys like french skipping ropes encourage children to play with other children and teaches them how to take turns.
Now roll on some sunshine and warmth!!
