I’ve been browsing John Lewis store online to find some fun games for the kids to have in the garden this summer. Outdoor fun is so important and my kids just love it in the garden. We currently have swings, a slide and scooters but I thought it would be nice to get them some more toys for outside, especially now the weather is getting better, and we have the whole six week summer holiday coming up soon.
John Lewis have lots of choice so I’ve picked a few of my favourites for you.
Water Based Toys
Lets start with something kids of all ages enjoy…bubbles. This fab little bubble making machine will save you blowing while the kids chase the bubbles around the garden. Of course you can buy them some bottles of bubbles themselves but just tell them the bubble machine is blowing yours for them.
Kids like nothing more than water play in the summer, and what could be more fun than a Super Soaker! Just make sure you stay indoors and leave them to it.
Fun and Exercise
One of the games I truly loved as a child was Rounders. It was fun, you got loads of exercise and it needs very little equipment, like this Rounders Bat and Ball set. I bet you’ll be joining in with the kids with this one.
There are so many games that you can play in your garden that don’t take up much space. Great if you only have a small garden, the kids can still play outside and have some fun. Here is one of those games, a fabulous Hoopla Set
How about taking a favourite indoor game outside? All you need to do is make it bigger like this fantastic Giant Tower Game. I remember one of these being outside at a wedding reception a couple of years ago, it was a great success with kids and ‘big’ kids.
