This game is one of our FAVORITE ways to have summer outdoor fun. My boys and I have enjoyed this super fun game morning, afternoon, and night during the summer. It’s also a fantastic way to practice math skills 😉
2. Sidewalk Chalk
There are SO many ways to enjoy summer fun activities with sidewalk chalk. A few ideas to enjoy with your kids include:
- Practice sight words
- Creative doodle prompts
- Handwriting (print or cursive) practice

Sandboxes are one the oldest and best activities for sensory play. Think about it- what childhood doesn’t involve a sandbox?
If you plan on having your kids play outside, this resource is the perfect addition to your backyard to keep them entertained for hours! Pretty neat, right?
For the most entertaining outdoor activity, this Giant Connect 4 Game is an excellent choice. For years to come, your family will beg you to pull out this game to play all afternoon long no matter their age. This super cool game that’s perfect for outdoors is really a wonderful way to make special memories with your kids 🎉
5. Water Guns
These water guns are perfect for the whole family. This special pack comes with 4 water guns and can lead to hours of fun in and out of the pool or yard. I love how they come in different colors and are perfect for chasing a kid (or 2).
The bonus to these water guns is that you can take these activities just about anywhere on your trip, like the beach or on a hike.
Remember how much fun slip n’ slides were when you were a kid? Well, I have news for you- it’s still true. Slip n’ slides are one of the most fun things that you can get for your yard. And this rainbow slip n’ slide is no exception. Hook it up with the hose and watch as the kids (and maybe a few grownups) have fun all afternoon.
Bonus tip– throw some dish soap on it and really watch them fly!
This kit is just SO AWESOME that I couldn’t leave it off of the list! My boys and I have had so much fun with this kit 🎉This big bubbles kit makes gigantic bubbles and is one of the most fun ways to spend the afternoon.
Imagine, the kids are playing in the pool or yard and you decide to set this up. You begin blowing giant bubbles over their heads as they’re playing and it becomes one of their favorite memories.
This is what outside memories are made of 😀
I ❤️️ these rocket launchers. These toys are made of great quality so that the rocket shoots up to 100 feet in the air. It’s so awesome and you could totally add a homeschool lesson in there about all of the science that goes into it!
My favorite part about this toy? The rocket launches by someone stomping on the pedal, making it completely air-powered. That means it doesn’t require any batteries or plugins – which means the kids can just set up and play!
This geometric dome climber can help kids burn off every last ounce of energy that they have – and it works. They will climb, twist, and turn on this sturdy toy for hours while they make up game after game. It’s awesome!
And this “toy” is awesome for adults, too! Don’t be surprised if your significant other (or yourself) wants to join the fun.
This play camping kit comes with over 30 toys for kids who just want to camp all summer long. Set up the tent then let your kids reenact awesome camping adventures over and over again.
If you can, fill a cooler with snacks and water bottles to keep them hydrated and full.
