Backyard Fun: 5 Ways to Keep Kids Entertained from Home This Spring
Ah spring. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and after a long winter the kids are ready to take playtime outside again! From kites to scooters to playhouses, Well.ca has everything you need to keep your kids active and entertained this spring.
Take Imaginative Play Outside
Let your littles get their hands dirty with the TP Toys Muddy Maker Mud Kitchen. This kitchen set comes with a tub for water, a painted stovetop, utensils, and a blackboard for writing the menu. Kids will love cooking and dining al fresca with what they can find in the garden. Mud pies and dandelion salad anyone?
Bring the Playground Home:
If your little ones love to climb, the Eezy Peezy Monkey Bars will keep them active and entertained for hours. Designed for ages 3-6, this climbing structure can hold up to 150 pounds and is almost 4 feet high. With a little imagination it can be a mountain, a castle, the possibilities are endless! Add a bedsheet for an easy blanket fort.
Refresh neighbourhood walks with a new scooter
Scooters are a great way for kids burn off energy while zooming down the sidewalk or along park paths. We love Micro of Switzerland for their high quality, bright colours, and ability to grow with their rider. With 3 wheels, the Mini Micro Deluxe is perfect for 2-5 year olds learning to scooter. Micro also offers a variety of scooters, ride-ons, and balance bikes, plus bells and helmets.
Try An Outdoor Game
Playing ball hockey in the driveway or cul-de-sac is a quintessential outdoor activity. The Franklin Hockey Goal/Stick Set is a perfect starter kit for kids. It includes a stick, ball, and net with a siren that goes off with every goal!
Introduce younger kids to the classic summer sport of baseball with the Little Tikes TotSports T-Ball Set. Let them develop hand eye coordination while having fun. Set up bases around the yard, recruit the family, and get a full T-Ball game going.
For the whole family, FunSparks Switch Ball brings a new fun twist on catch. Using a handheld net, try to catch and slingshot the ball back and forth. This game comes with a carrying case, making it easy to bring to the park or the beach!
Give Kids Their Own Outdoor Space
A backyard clubhouse provides hours of fun and imaginative play for kids, and we’re excited about the new Little Tikes Backyard Bungalow House! With its open design, this bungalow can be a house, a café, a farmer’s market, whatever your little one can dream up. Plus the neutral colours look chic in any backyard!
How are you keeping your little ones entertained this spring?
