A sandbox is a classic backyard playground that will keep little ones entertained for hours, digging and pouring and sifting. This Step 2 model is available at Walmart and comes with a lid to protect sand from weather and pets. The earth tones fit nicely into the backyard landscape as well!
Trust Melissa & Doug to make blowing bubbles even more fun with the new Augie Alligator Bubble Saxophone Whistle. Definitely an outdoor toy (for bubble and sound reasons!)
Little hands can learn to throw and catch with a Flip Toss set (whiffle ball included) that adults can enjoy too! Available at Toys R Us.
The new range of Maximum BOOM games are at Mastermind this spring and promise to be a new classic. We tested out this paddle ball set with the tethered ball and our kids loved the 'boom!' sound it made when the ball hit the paddle.
If your little ones are eager to join the big leagues soon, what better way to start than with a glove and ball ($8.99) or Tee stand ($11.99) set from Target? At these prices, you don't have to invest much to get their big league dreams started! Check out your local flyer here.
