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 with this drum of outdoor chalks. Perfect for little children and older children too.
These kites are great fun on windy days at the park or beach. They fold up nicely and are light to carry.
Set up some fun marble challenges outside. This tub has enough for several children. I also stock nets of marbles
These pink ones with heart designs is beautiful.
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.
Bruder Trucks and Vehicles are sturdy enough for outdoor play. Perfect if you have a sand pit or enjoy visiting the beach. Prices start from €16.99
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!!
