9 Fun Toys to Ring in the Summer With!

By Danielle |

Happy June!

I don’t know about you, but where I live it is starting to get HOT! Summer may not be upon us for another couple weeks but it feels like it is the dead of July already!

In the past week we have started to break out the water toys in the yard and I thought now would be a perfect time to put together a fun list of summer toys all toddlers should be enjoying with this beautiful weather!

If your toddlers are anything like mine, they have no desire to be inside the house once it is warm out. Sun up to sun down they want to play outside or on our back deck which I am completely fine with! I mean, when I was little my mom would basically kick me out of the house ’till dinner time. Of course not when I was a toddler but as a child!

I am secretly glad they want to go outside to spend their days instead of rotting in front of a game system like so many kids are today — but that’s a whole other story for another day! I also love sitting out in the fresh air watching the smiles on their faces; there are far less fights when we’re outside playing!

These are some of our favorites and new toys we have picked up for the summer which is upon us.

If you have activities or toys that are a must in your family, please comment below to share all the amazing ideas with the other readers!

A Water Table

You don't have to buy a fancy water table, and you could even make one of your own, but it is a summer must have with toddlers! We use ours every day when it starts to heat up!

    I love these water tables. My daughter delights when we go to our friend’s house that has one. She loves nothing more than to be soaked from head to toe when it’s incredibly hot outside! Keeping our kids active can be a chore sometimes because you are right..there is a lot of distractions when it comes to electronics!
    Great article!
    Thanks for sharing…

    Great slide show list! We just bought my toddler a little slide that he can play on outside. Between the water table, our sprinkler, a beach ball and the slide, he’s all set!
