When you have two kids in the house, outdoor play activities are a must. Enhancing their physical movements/gross motor skills helps them with their development mentally and physically. I’ve compiled a few of the items that help our kids with their outdoor play activities. These are some ways on how to enhance backyard fun. (A lot of these activities are geared towards my toddler but the sister enjoys them as well). Please feel free to browse through the links and see what works for you.
1. Bubbles In The Air
We got these bubbles during the summer time to have for outside bubble time and it was a big hit. 20 pieces of various size bubble wands were a good fit for my two kiddos. All you need is a bottle of bubbles and off they go exploring all the different shapes.
2. Golf Time
Next we got them these mini golf set. We took the kids miniature golfing with my sister’s family one day and the kids had an awesome time so we thought of bringing the golf to the back yard. The kids mainly play with it in the house but it’s an awesome addition to the back yard for a fun activity. It helps with gross motor skills and eye hand coordination for my toddler.
3. Fishing Time
Who doesn’t enjoy fishing? Have a bucket of water and have the kids fish away in fun. It helps them with so many different motor skills as well as eye hand coordination for your little ones as well. Who says bath toys are only meant for the bath tub. We used these fishing tools outside with a two buckets full of water. The kids enjoyed transferring the fish from one bucket to another and then vice versa.
4. Scooter Fun Time For Young Ones
Riding a scooter has been a fun activity for the kids. They enjoy learning to balance and push forward. My toddler learned within a few days and amazed us all. There’s a choice between a black and a pink and my son chose the black one. He impressed us with his learning skills, as it only took him a few tries before he was off and away.
5. Scooter Fun Time For Older Ones
Sister got this razor one that she loved. It has more options for older ones and is a bit catered to older kids. She chose the pink one. They enjoy their scooter time outside and often switch to ride each other’s as well.
These are some of the ideas on how to enhance your backyard into a fun zone that my kids enjoy having. We got them all from amazon. Who doesn’t enjoy being an Amazon Prime Member right?
