Yay – What’s that we can see in the sky?  A blue sky at that!  Glorious sunshine.  Sadly, we all know that the sun might not be here to stay but certainly as we move into spring we will find ourselves encouraging our little ones to play outside and enjoy the sun. Playing in the garden can now become a regular activity after school along with more visits to the local park at the weekends.  Long gone are those long dark nights.

When planning your outside space try to avoid the usual gender stereotypes. We can guarantee that girls love to kick around a ball, just as much as boys and that boys like to play house, just as much as girls.  Children do tend to have low attention spans, so variety is essential and if a toy can be dual purpose then even the better!

Play outside with our most popular toys and games

Let’s take a look at some easy ways to make play outside even more fun.

play outside with sand and water

Our Premium Plum activity table

This makes the top of our play outside list.  This versatile play table can be used as a picnic bench, colouring table and for messy play.  You will love keeping the activities outside and the children will adore the flexibility.

play outside in a playhouse

Wooden bluebell play house

This cute two in one activity house and slide won’t break the bank and will fit neatly into any size garden.  Imagine the delight of waking up on a sunny day to find that this delightful toy had magically appeared in the garden overnight?

play outside with samba goals

Samba Goals

Encourage fitness and stamina with a football goal set.  We are huge fans of samba and stock a wide range of goals in various sizes to meet most budgets.  and when the post is not being used for football and blanket can magically transform this into the best den ever…

We find that encouraging nature into your garden is one sure-fire way to spread some epic joy.

We’d love to see some of your pictures of your children playing in the sunshine.  Why not pop over to our facebook page and share a picture to be in with a chance to be featured in our next blog post!
