This post has been written in collaboration with Wicked Uncle

Summer is just around the corner (hopefully!), which means I will encourage my boys to spend as much time outdoors as possible. We are fortunate enough to have a decent-sized garden where they can play. We’ve had our fair share of outdoor toys from sandpits and water tables to trampolines.

10 best outdoor toys for kids

Here are some of the best outdoor toys for kids to keep them entertained (whether in your garden or the park) when the weather’s nice.

The boys have this ball, and it’s great for improving your football skills, counting how many keepy uppys you can do. Each time the Smart Ball touches your body, it will count and light up. Smart Ball encourages you to keep going by counting up to 100 with noises and words.

See how high you can launch the Jump Rocket! This is great for taking to the park, we’ve tried it in the garden, but the rocket launch can be unpredictable so a big open area is best. The set comes with three lightweight rockets and the launcher with a launch pad that you jump on to launch the rocket.
