Backyard Play Ideas for Toddlers
Summer is nearly here and the sunshine is looking real good.
I’ve been living for the sunshine here in Washington. It’s known to be the rainiest state, so when the sun comes out we are here for it!
I’ve been spending my days with the backdoor open, working on my patio while the twins run in and out of the house. This is absolutely a time where I am ever grateful for a backyard for my toddlers to play! With all of this sunshine, I have been looking into new and fun backyard play ideas for toddlers.
While they’re absolutely content throwing the dog toys around, I’m tired of them bringing their inside toys outside! Scouring for legos in the grass is no fun. Stepping on them is even worse, lol!
I’ve been asking friends with older kiddos and doing some Amazon research to find the best backyard play ideas for toddlers and I think I’ve come up with a stellar list. What I’ve been able to put together so far have been total WINS with my toddler twins. Especially #4 on my list!!
