Our Favorites for Outdoor Play!

Posted By:

Summer is finally here and we want to encourage the kids to get outside. It is easy for your little ones to get excited about the outdoors with these favorite MotherCo picks:

1. Kiwicrate



From lemonade stands to croquet, these adorable kits will get your kids busy using their creative skills and playing outside. With this subscription company your kids will be excited when a new package comes in the mail each month!

2. ‘Slackers’ Slackline


Get the whole family practicing those balancing skills  – all you need are 2 trees and a little bit of courage.


3. Gazillion Incredi-bubble Wand


Think about how much your kids love bubbles, now multiply that by 1000! These giant bubbles provide hours of fun – even for the grownups.


4. Castakite


Everyone loves flying a kite, but no one loves untangling it from a neighbors tree. With this amazing product you can kiss those tangles good bye and just enjoy the flying.


5. Micro Mini 3 in 1 Scooter


Why buy your child a new scooter every year from age 1 – 5 when you can have 1 scooter that does it all? This amazing scooter grows with your kid and allows them to choose their comfort level.


6. Grow Your Own Organic Veggies



Kids love playing in dirt so why not throw in a little horticulture lesson while they’re at it?  A perfect way for kids to learn where their food comes from, and who knows, maybe they’ll even learn to love their veggies!


7. A Teepee to Call Your Own


Set it up in the backyard with some pillows and your child’s favorite books and while away the hours on a summer afternoon. Also ideal for shady picnics al fresco.

We also love the incredibly adorable teepee made by Roberta Roller Rabbit!

Of course, there are always the old standbys – balls, bug catchers, hula hoops, slip n slides and star gazing – to name a few. Here’s to the best summer ever.
