Our Favorite Outdoor Toys To Get You Ready For Spring!

Spring is just around the corner. Do you know what that means?

It means spending more time outside, in the yard, on the trail, and at the lake. After staying cooped up and cozy all winter long, our legs are ready to stretch.

Our kids, especially, are ready to run, to roam, to climb, and to stay outside as long as possible. And with the right outdoor toys, you can ensure a long and happy spring, summer, and even autumn ahead.

So what are the best outdoor toys for kids to keep them out in nature longer? And what are the best outdoor activities for the whole family? We’ve compiled the list of things you need this season below.

Rock Climbing Holds With Tree Straps

Most people aren’t looking to build a proper rock climbing wall but would love to give their kids an opportunity to climb. You can get rock climbing holds that strap directly to large trees.

This keeps them physically active and engaged in their natural environment.

Climbing Dome

Kids are over basic playsets in the backyard. They want something more interesting and that allows for more climbing.

A climbing dome is made entirely of climbing bars and will provide your kids and their friends endless fun.

Portable Hammock Stand

After all of that climbing, kids will need a nice place to rest while still enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. A portable hammock stand is a perfect way to use hammocks in treeless yards.

Plus, you can take them anywhere. Now you can nap in a hammock on the beach or at the park to enjoy a restful time outside.

Cornhole

Year after year, cornhole boards are one of the most popular outdoor toys for adults. They work so perfectly at parties and BBQs, allowing you to compete without even putting your drink down.

Spikeball

Have you tried Spikeball yet? If not, get ready to put your cornhole boards in storage, because this game has been exploding in popularity lately.

Remember playing foursquare in elementary school? It’s kind of like that, mixed with volleyball, and way more fun than both.

A small trampoline is in the middle of a large circle (painted or drawn on the ground). Your goal is to hit a ball onto the net in such a way that the opposing team can’t get it. It’s a bit more physically active than cornhole, but a lot more fun for the whole family.

Slackline

When you see a slackline, it’s hard not to give it a try. Once you try and fail immediately, it’s hard not to try again. And again. And again.

Slacklining is difficult to get the hang of, even though it looks easy. You balance on a thin, flat band secured to 2 large trees.

The problem is that once you start, it’s hard to stop. You won’t be able to live with yourself until you can walk from tree to tree; an incredibly impressive feat.

Enjoy Your Yard Like Never Before With the Best Outdoor Toys

It doesn’t take a week-long trip into the backcountry to enjoy the outdoors. All you need is a yard and a few outdoor toys to make your spring and summer memorable.

Sure, camping trips are fun. But your kids will be much happier if they have something they can enjoy daily.
