Maybe we have a touch of cabin fever here, or maybe we are optimistic, but we are holding onto that spring day fantasy for all that it is worth and taking it a step further by planning what playful additions to our backyard oasis that we want to make!
If you too are day dreaming about spring breezes and afternoons spent playing in the sun, you will want to note a few of these products, designed with families in mind, to bring a new level of fun to your yard!
The simple pleasures of a see-saw never go out of style. This one is sturdy, durable and made with pre-sanded lumber to make it safer for children to climb and play on! We love the smooth movement of this see-saw and the generously sized beam of this model.
No clubhouse or playset is complete without a fun-ctional telescope! This one is priced to fit any budget and it is durable and easy to attach to any clubhouse or outdoor play set. The lenses are sturdy and will give new eyes to make believe play in the back yard! I love this option because it is affordable for families and will keep the kids happily playing for hours and hours!
Another great and affordable option for adding a touch of fun to a playset or swing set is this durable ships wheel. Priced at about $40, it brings a new way to play to the backyard and encourages imaginative play in kids of all ages. If we are being honest about intentions, I am ordering one of these, not only for the kids but also for me. I can't resist steering the ship when the opportunity arises!
Spring days are not complete without a sandbox session! I love the interlocking design of this one, but there is something I love even more; the cover! This really helps keep the sand clean and ready to dig into when you can't make it to the beach.
Are you adding any new fun elements to your backyard this spring to encourage the kids to play outside more often? I would love to hear what outdoor toys are on your must get list this year!
