Playing outdoors is a great way to keep our kids active and ourselves healthy. But when the winter comes, the temptation of staying inside, watching movies or TV is harder to resist. In my case, I’m lucky because my daughters will not take NO for answer when it comes to playing outside, even when it is cold and snowy (so I don’t have to push anybody but myself out of the house).
These are a few games and toys that will make any outdoor enthusiastic very happy but also will motivate those who need an extra push to open the door to go out and play!
Playing ‘tag’ never gets old and with the Dodge Tag Game Set your family will have a blast. It works this way: each player wears a vest and picks 3 balls. Then, they throw the balls and try to stick them on their opponent’s vests. The set includes 2 adjustable air-mesh vests and 6 balls. Recommended for kids 5 years and up.
Monkey Bars are always a special ‘attraction’ for kids who like to climb and play and climb again. This one is constructed of durable plastic tubes and it’s easy to assemble. And also it is easy to carry, that means you can take it to your mom’s or friend’s house to have an afternoon of outdoor fun (without the stress of planning everything)
Some kids just love camping and this tent will make their Christmas day very memorable. It’s a safari tent, with a proof floor lining and cargo net storage pouches.
Comes with a Pop-Up Field Guide and it’s recommended for kids ages 5 and up.
I personally don’t know any kid who doesn’t like to go on the swings. This particular swing has a shape of a regatta sailboat and allows two kids to play together. It’s perfect to hang it from a tree.
Great gift for the little ones in the family and their friends!
For those families that live in places where winter brings tons of snow, this kit will transform a simple snowy day into a fun artsy day. With the Sno-Markers (safe and non toxic) the kids can paint and decorate snow by mixing warm water with the Sno-Marker color packet. This kit also includes two Sno-Molds to create shapes on the snow. Recommended for children 5 years of age and older.
Also for kids who can’t wait for a snow day, this sled is a great gift. Built to last for many years, this sled has a special cushion for comfort and it’s perfect to play on the backyard or take it to the parks where other kids get together to slide on the hills and spend the best part of their winter’s days.
More girls and boys than ever are playing soccer in the US these days and one way to keep them playing and practicing is bringing home this set that it is not only easy to assemble but also glows in the dark. So, the kids can keep playing even when the sun comes down, especially in these days of winter when at 5:00 pm it is already dark.. The set includes a goal, a soccer ball and 4 ground stakes. Recommended for kids 7 years old and up.|
