Spring is here and we are enjoying more warm days and the sunshine feels so good! I don't know about you, but in my household, we are ALL happier when we spend more time outside.

We've put together a list of fun items to add to your outdoor time. Use them in your backyard or at the park-either way, you're sure to have a blast~click the images to purchase!

Sidewalk chalk was in high demand the last year-and in my household, it brought hours of fun! We created obstacle courses with it, created kindness notes for our neighbors, and even left some messages and drawings at local parks.

My boys LOVED the butterfly lesson this year in 1st grade-in non-pandemic years, they would have enjoyed watching the butterfly life cycle occur in their classroom. Since they missed out, we will be doing using this Butterfly Kit at home and I can't wait to see the excitement when they release their butterflies at the end!


Kinetic Sand brings hours of fun to my household. Kinetic Sand stimulates children’s creativity, easily cleans up, and sticks to itself! This is not only a fun activity outside, but it's also great for those rainy days too. Throw it in a tray or container with some carts, trucks, or shovels and cups, and let the kids go to town! This pack is great because it's resealable so storage is built-in as well.


Do Bubbles ever get old? Nope! These are great fun for all ages. Even my pup gets in on the bubble fun chasing and trying to eat them. This brings hours of laughter and excitement in our backyard. These giant bubble wands create long, GIANT bubbles thanks to a 2-handle design, which has been used to set every big bubble world record in the last 30 years. Passers-by will be sure to say "WOW... Amazing"!

Stomping+flying rockets=loads of fun! Fun Foam Toy Rocket Launcher - Run. Jump. Launch! Kids will have a blast while blasting off with this fantastically fun foam toy rocket launcher. Durably designed and reliably built to withstand endless hours of jumping, stomping, and playtime! Safe for age 3+. Easy enough to take to the park for fun with friends too.

My boys are older now, but when they were a little younger this Water Table was their FAVORITE toy. We used it with water in the summer and water beads in the spring and fall. We even used it the last year we had it as a mud kitchen. This was well worth the investment and occupied all three boys for hours on end.
