1. TRAMPOLINE WATERPARK FUN

If you’re already lucky enough to own a trampoline add even more summer fun to it by making it a water trampoline. Simply attach the water spray hose to your safety net enclosure for some wet bouncy fun!

 

2. Banzai Grand Slam Baseball Waterslide

The little all-star rookies in your family will sure get a kick out of a wet game of baseball! It includes a 14x14ft water slide diamond, with plastic bat and baseball. Though its recommended for ages 5-12, I think it would work best for 4-10 years.

 

3. Bunch o Balloons 

A water balloon fight is inevitable during summer break. Make it easier with Bunch o Balloons by Zuru that fills 100 water balloons in 60 seconds. You can make the fight even more fun by launching your water balloons with this slingshot.

 

4. Giant Connect 4

What I love most about this giant connect four is that parents can enjoy it, too. It would make for fun during summer play time and outdoor party activities.

 

5. Mini Frisbee Golf

 

6. Glitter Sidewalk Chalk

With this set of Crayola glitter sidewalk chalk you get the brightest colors that shimmer in the sunlight. Plus they even offer a 3D glitter version.

 

7. GIANT BUBBLE WAND KIT

This complete set includes everything you need to make record-breaking giant bubbles. Wands, bubble concentration, and a tips and trick booklet are all included.

 

8. DUNK HAT GAME

With this wet and wild game, each player takes turns wearing the dunk hat with a water filled tank. The the other players each get 3 throws to try to hit the target. Take turns wearing the hat, the person who hits the target first and wets the hat wearer WINS! Super easy and fun for all ages.

 

9. Scooter


 

10.  Bumper Balls

 

11. Intex Easy Set Pool

12. Inflatable Outdoor Projector Movie Screen

Not necessarily a toy, but this will definitely keep your kids outside, both young and old. Movie night in the backyard? Yes, please!


 

 

 

13. Pretex Fireman Backpack Water gun Blaster with Fire Hat

Water gun fights were always a summer staple when I was growing up. However, if you’re a parent who isn’t into “gun” toys, I totally understand! This fireman water blaster is a great alternative, and honestly, way cooler than an ordinary water gun. You can even grab this fire hydrant water sprinkler to match!

 

14. Dinosaur Play Center

This play center is perfect for toddlers and preschool children to enjoy the outdoors, too.

 

15. Hopper Ball for Kids

This will sure to brighten kids faces with memories from field day, but now they can bring it to their own back yard!

  1. I want the Bunch o Balloons! Those would be perfect. I wish we had more room in our backyard for fun stuff like this. We have an inflatable unicorn pool up right now.

  2. We had a trampoline growing up, and we definitely turned it into a water park…. with the hose, sprinkler, and a bottle of dish soap.

    Always a whole lot of fun, and in hindsight, always real dumb.
