I made it a goal this summer to spend more time with my kids outdoors, even if it was only a few minutes each day.
My older kids can pretty much entertain themselves and find things to do on their own. They have bikes, can go explore, we have a pond to fish in or ride my son’s go-kart.
For my toddler it is a little harder to keep him entertained for any length of time. Plus, I’m in my third trimester and I live in Georgia. It’s REALLY HOT here. I found that he needs a few things he can play with on his own so mama can sit in the shade for a few minutes.
Here is a list of the BEST outdoor toys for toddlers on Amazon!

Little Tikes Spiralin’ Seas Waterpark Play Table
We have this exact table. The price is very reasonable and it will keep my toddler entertained for a LONG time. Plus its perfect for the days when sticky popsicles melt quickly outdoors and you don’t feel like cleaning them up. Toddlers splash water everywhere = popsicle mess GONE!
Step 2 Up and Down Roller Coaster
Step 2 Neat and Tidy Cottage
This outdoor playhouse is awesome! It has a doorbell the kids can ring (and they will all. the. time) a grill and sink for imaginary play, a seat by the grill/sink combo, I really liked it because it has a solid bottom and the kids wouldn’t be in the grass. I didn’t want to worry about ants or other bugs and uninvited guest getting in that way. The window on the side opens up and the kids LOVE to play peek a boo with it!
This is super easy to set up and my kids younger and older alike love it! Sometimes you have to adjust where and how the water sprays so it stays on the kids and not in the grass but overall its not a big deal. You can turn the water pressure up a big for a large fountain or dial it back for the littles!
I have never had much luck with bubble machines lasting long so this summer we got a few bubble guns since my toddler is now old enough to pull their trigger. It was an instant success and he fell in love with it!
