We are big fans of playing outside, so now that warmer weather is here, that often means making sure we have some good outdoor toys with us. But what does that mean for your Piñata? Well, take it with you of course!
In warmer months, I typically still pick one board game since the weather can turn on a dime, but the rest of my Piñata selections are meant to go outside with us! Many of the activity toys offered can easily be made into outdoor toys. Here are some great Piñata picks that are perfect for inside or out!
Meadow Ring Toss is a great example of a toy that can be played with inside and outside! This toy is incredibly versatile, fun, and helps develop hand-eye coordination, visual, and problem solving skills through aiming and throwing the rings at the poles. It was a big hit with our little guy, and the other kids in the area were eager to play with it as well. After the tossing was done, the pegs were quickly converted to goal posts for a little game of soccer.
We LOVE our water table, so last month we had the Green Toys submarine out with us – and it was a hit! My son loved using this toy along with his regular water table toys. The bright colors on the submarine help develop his young cognitive skills, and moving the submarine under the water uses his fine motor skills, so he learns a lot from playing in the water! Bring it inside and run it through the dishwasher for easy cleanup.
This toy is perfect for bathtime and the pool! All of the pieces on this stacker are different colors, fueling my little one's color recognition skills, and the stackable nature of this toy is perfect for developing his fine motor skills. My little guy loves that each piece of the stacker has holes in different spots and shapes, making it fun to watch the water flow from one to another. BPA-free plastic makes cleaning this toy a breeze – simply run it through the dishwasher on the top rack when it gets dirty!
The Coastguard boat is perfect for encouraging your little's one's imagination through play in the water. Made from sustainable rubber wood with a non-toxic finish, the coastguard boat includes a little driver to simulative interactive play while having fun. Who doesn't love water rescues at the water table? Little Coastguard boat to the rescue!
Traveling this summer? Then you need the Zippy Cars Magnetic Game! With four different background scenes, 112 pieces, and a magnetic tin case, this game is perfect for little hands at home or on the go. Long car rides become so much easier when my guy is entertained with his own little race car adventure!
This colorful, bright toy encourages your little ones to make sounds through music and keep your little ones engaged. It's made from all natural recycyled rubber wood, which means that all it needs is a quick wipe down after play. We like to enjoy outdoor family dinner picnics on nice nights, and who doesn't love a little music to accompany their pasta salad, albeit a little off key!
The Walk-A-Long Puppy is great for encouraging your little ones to walk. Take it with them to the park, on a family walk, or let them walk with the puppy in the backyard for hours of fun. The summer is all about parades, and at our house it's no different! Walk-a-long puppy is usually the main star of the show in our backyard.
