Summer toys and games for kids

Sharing is caring!

Make summer easy and put together a box of garden toys by the back door that the kids can help themselves too and go have fun!

Include a good but inexpensive mix of toys and games that’ll keep them busy in the garden throughout the summer.

Make a summer garden games box 
  • football
  • bats and ball
  • a big sheet and umbrellas for making dens
  • skittles – shop bought or make your own with old drinks bottles
  • hula hoop
  • skipping rope
  • noughts and crosses game – make your own with painted stones
  • stilts – shop bought or make your own with syrup tins like in the 80’s
  • bubbles
  • set of elastics (yes totally retro but don’t pretend you won’t have a go yourself…)
  • magnifying glass
  • notebooks & pencils
  • marble run – if you’ve got one it’s great for outdoor play in the summer as kids can pour water down it.

And the good bit about it all being in a box, well, it’s super easy to tidy away at the end of the day and ready to go again the next day.
