Now that summer is finally on the way, it’s time to start stocking up on fun outdoor toys for kids! We want our kids to spend time outside soaking up that Vitamin D (with plenty of sunscreen on, of course!), right? While you don’t have to go crazy on outdoor toys, I always liked to have a few on hand to prevent my kids from uttering the dreaded “I’m so bored!” These toys are mostly geared towards toddlers and preschoolers, but a few of them are fun for older kids too. The water toys are great for encouraging your older kids to help out their younger siblings! Let’s check out Amazon’s top 10 outdoor toys for kids, shall we?

How much fun is this Bestway H2O Go Triple Water Slide? At under $15, it’s an inexpensive way to get active and cool off on those hot summer days. I love that it creates a water pool at the front of the slide for a faster takeoff. Most slides pool the water at the end.

My kids loved sidewalk chalk and their basketball net when they were little. Great toys to encourage outdoor play.
I remember the sidewalk chalk from when I was little, we loved playing hopscotch! :-)
Great list, thank you! These are right on time. My girls need new outdoor toys badly.
Love this! I see a few ideas for my God son, he would love all of this. We love things we can do outside
My kids are now teens so probably a bit too old for these in particular however we always played with things like this when they were younger. Such a nice way to enjoy the summer!
These are great picks to get little bodies moving. I’ll have to get a few for when my young nice and nephew come to spend time with us this summer.
So many great toy choices! We recently got a bouncy house/castle for our backyard and it’s all my kids want to do anymore. They have SO much fun!
I still love to play Ring Toss. If I were a kid now, though, I would ask for the garden cart and wheelbarrow, and suggest my parents get one of the siblings the game. That way, I could play with it and still have the gift I’d rather have. These are all great choices of toys for kids.
We don’t have kids but we collect kid toys for all the friends who have kids. Love the ring toss game, that looks like a great outdoor game for them!
So many good idea. When our kids were small we had a lawnmower… they LOVED that thing. Even in middle school, they still love to draw with chalk on the driveway.
These toys look like they would do a good job of entertaining the little ones outside.
I am sure older siblings can find some use with some of these as well.
These all look like great outdoor toys. My little nephew would really like the Intex Dinosaur Inflatable play center.
My cutness meter is pegging! I can’t even with that little gardening set. TOO CUTE!
That mower is so cute! My son used to follow his dad around with a mower like that while his dad did the real mowing. My daughters did, too, actually.
