Kids Shell Bucket for outdoor play

Outdoor play is essential for the development and happiness of children, offering them a chance to explore the world around them while engaging in healthy physical activity. As parents and caregivers look for ways to reduce screen time, integrating imaginative, outdoor activities can provide an enriching experience for little ones. Here are the top five ways to enjoy more outdoor play, perfect for any adventure in nature.

Pedal and Scoot Around the Park

1. Encourage your little ones to develop their motor skills with bikes, trikes, and scooters. Our active collection are not only safe and durable but also beautifully crafted to fit right into the aesthetics of natural play. A family trip to the park with these ride-ons can make for an afternoon of races, obstacle courses, or a leisurely ride along winding paths, all while building balance and coordination.

Splash and Water Play

2. On warmer days, nothing beats the fun of water play. Our splash pads and water play toys are designed to offer kids the excitement of water games without the need for a pool. Set up is easy in the garden, and kids can enjoy splashing around and playing with water streams. It’s a refreshing way to engage in sensory play and cool off during those warm summer days.


Nature Scavenger Hunts

3. Arm your little explorers with a simple bucket and send them on a scavenger hunt in your backyard or a local park. Write down a list of natural items to find, such as leaves, stones, flowers, and insects. This activity encourages observational skills and curiosity about the natural world, all while they're having a blast.


Outdoor Art Station

4. Set up an outdoor art station using just paper and some paint or crayons . Let the inspiration flow as children draw landscapes, leaves, or whatever catches their eye in nature. Not only does this activity foster creativity, but it also helps children express themselves and see the environment through an artistic lens.

Picnic with Wooden Play Sets

5. Organise a picnic in the park or garden and bring along our wooden food play sets for a fun and imaginative playtime. Children can pretend to prepare meals, serve their stuffed animals, or even host a small picnic for family and friends. It’s a lovely way to combine snack time with playtime and gives children a fantastic setting for role-playing and social interaction.


By incorporating these simple activities into your family's outdoor routine, you not only enrich your little ones playtime but also contribute to their overall physical and cognitive development. Remember, the goal is to make outdoor play a regular, joyous part of their daily lives, fostering a lifelong appreciation for nature and active living.
