I feel like summer is just flying by. Can you believe it is already July (my birthday month)!? Summertime means lots of fun inside to cool off but we love being outdoors. We could seriously stay outside all day. Since we have less travel planned this year I’ve spent a little extra on outdoor toys/activities. I thought it would be fun to share a list of our summertime must haves.
I have included tons of great affordable options that my kids love (and it keeps them busy for more than two minutes)!
What we love
Bubble Blower: I love this because Tripp can do it himself and because it doesn’t constantly run it doesn’t waste as many bubbles.
Chalk: I mean art can keep my kiddos busy for awhile.
Swing: Both the kids love to swing in this and I love watching them relax.
Bike: Tripp is a bike master now and I can actually go on runs while he bikes.
Scooter: Another fun on the go activity and Annabelle is even learning to use it!
Water Table: Water to cool off for days and the kids love making up stories of what they are doing with all the water.
Jeep: This one comes with a remote for parents if your kids aren’t old enough to drive solo.
Mini Pool : Because you need to beat the heat!
One of my favorite things to do is to set up fun obstacle courses for the kids. Tripp loves racing and Annabelle loves watching and participating when she can. This really burns energy but also teaches them great skills.
Also, one of my favorite thing is to grab those super cheap skinny popsicles and after a good day let the kids have a treat. It might not be the healthiest but a treat every so often in the summer is worth the fun!
Here is a video of Tripp doing one of the obstacle courses I put together. Summer fun doesn’t have to be expensive. Seriously, Pinterest can give you ALL the ideas and usually it is with items you already have around your house!
What are your summertime must haves?
