Mommy Mondays: Best outdoor toys

 outdoor toys

 We are an outdoors kind of family. We all four love being outside and enjoy playing together outside. While these are far from the only toys we enjoy playing with outside, here are some of our favorites. I have tried to include prices and links as well.

  1. PlasmaCar_Purple PlasmaCar, $49.97 at

My daughter received a Plasma Car for Christmas a year ago and loves the thing. Her preschool has several of these things too, and the kids love them. They are lots of fun for grown-ups too (yes, I’ve tested it. Don’t judge 🙂  We live on a gravel road with a gravel drive, but she can ride it in the garage. It’s also a favorite toy of mine because it doesn’t make noise, it doesn’t use batteries and it I don’t have to charge it.
bowling pins

2. Sunny Patch Giddy Buggy Bowling Set- $19.99 at Toys R Us (Currently out of stock)

We love this bowling set. It comes with two balls and a carrying case. You can use it inside and out. We even set up our own bowling alley in the dining room during the snow storms last winter. Everything is lightweight and you don’t have to worry about injuries or tearing anything up if you decide to use it indoors. Plus, it’s super cute 🙂

sidewalk chalk

3. Play Day 52-Piece Chalk Activity Bucket, $10.63 at Walmart 

How much fun is sidewalk chalk? My kiddo loves it. She has actually been practicing handwriting and her letters with sidewalk chalk. We were beyond thrilled when some of her cousins gave her this sidewalk chalk art set for her birthday. She has been getting a kick out of it, and she just loves the stencils.

bubble machine

4. Little Kids Fubbles No Spill Bubble Machine, Pink and Purple, $12.99 at Walmart 

We love bubbles at this house. We have large bottles of bubbles, a bubble mower, a bubble fan, bubble wands and the bubble machine pictured above. The coolest thing about this machine is you can’t spill the bubbles (trust me, we’ve certainly spilled lots of bubbles and ended up with slippery garage floors a lot), and it blows a ton of bubbles. Big ones, too. Even my baby loves it.

power wheels

5. Peg Perego and Power Wheels Ride on Toys, various prices at various retailers.

My baby isn’t quite old enough yet for these toys, but my five year old has a ride on four wheeler she is now too big for, a John Deere tractor and a Power Wheels Barbie Jeep. All were birthday or Christmas gifts. We live in the country and have a lot of open pasture, so she can ride around on them a lot. These toys are expensive, so I definitely advise you to check out Craigslist or consignment shops like we did. You can save lots of money.

I hope you have enjoyed my outdoor toy list. Tune in next Monday for some great backyard play ideas I have found.
