There are many ways to play outdoors and lots of skills to build and enjoy – we hope our Top Five will help you choose a new item or two for spring outdoor play!
Early Ball Skills
The OgoDisk comes in a variety of sizes and is described as a 'hand trampoline for balls'. Easy for even preschoolers to use, the kooshie-type ball bounces on the large surface and two or more players can toss the ball back and forth, using the disks to 'catch and return' the ball.
Gross Motor Coordination
After looking at lots of beginner basketball nets on the market – the TotSports Easy Score set from Little Tikes was the definite winner. It's height-adjustable and sturdy – so it will last through many spring basketball seasons!
You don't need nine men when you've got the Fisher-Price Triple Hit baseball set. This grow-with-me set starts off as a tee for young t-ballers, then adjusts to pop-up play to practice catching. For older players, it converts to a pitching machine!
Run, Jump, and Play!
Encourage running, jumping, and chasing with the Crayola Outdoor Coloured Bubbles machine! These coloured bubbles are perfect for outdoors and the machine provides hours of bubble fun!
Go Fly a Kite
Combine creativity and outdoor fun with this great Kid's Creation kite from the Kite Guys. The kite comes pre-made and ready to fly – kids add their own creative design on the blank canvas with the included crayons.
Get outside and catch spring fever with your kids – their energy and sense of exploration will take you for a great ride!
